XML digital signature in Silverlight 4 and 5

The only problem I have (or mayve my lack of knowlage on digital signing) is that after I sign an XML and after than change some value in a child node the Verify function still says: Signature and references validated successfully. Am I doing something wrong or this is not the way to check if the content wasn't modified?

It depends on what you have signed. It is possible that you are modifying data that you didn't sign. Are you referencing a whole document or a specific element or external data?
Could you please attach here or to helpdesk a signed xml document.

I've experienced similar problem as Redman. I'm having Silverlight 5 application.

TElWinCertStorage WinCertStorage = new TElWinCertStorage();
WinCertStorage.SystemStores.Text = "MY";

And i get the same error as him on the second line.
I'm referencing the files from SILVERLIGHT_50 folder.
Do you have any guesses?

First of all check if the problem occurs with the latest SBB build.

Actually, Silverlight 5 assemblies the OP is using are a private build. I'll put them to quick updates in an hour.

Because in the changes.txt is written:

BTW, Dragomir, I assume you have a license (as you reference My Control Center), so please link the license ticket to your account so that we could recognize you as a licensed customer (this fact is shown to us by the site when you have the ticket linked).

Sincerely yours

A link to updated assemblies has been published on Release Downloads page (see the bottom of the page).

Sincerely yours

I have another question. Silverlight 5 has an in-browser elevated permissions option. When I run it on localhost it works ok, but when deployed on another server it fails with:

SCRIPT5022: Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application Attempt by security transparent method 'SBUtils.__Global.AllocCoTaskMem(Int32)' to call native code through method 'SBUtils.__Global.CoTaskMemAlloc(Int32)' failed.  Methods must be security critical or security safe-critical to call native code.   at SBUtils.__Global.AllocCoTaskMem(Int32 Size)
   at SBUtils.__Global.StringToCoTaskMemUni(Stri ng s)
   at SBWinCertStorage.TElWinCertStorage.Open()
   at SBWinCertStorage.TElWinCertStorage.HandleStoresChange(Object Sender)
   at SBStringList.TElStringList.TriggerChange()
   at SBStringList.TElStringList.EndUpdate()
   at SBCertValidator.TElX509CertificateValidator.InitializeWinStorages()
   at SLCert5.MainPage..ctor()
   at SLCert5.App.Application_Startup(Object sender, StartupEventArgs e)
   at MS.Internal.CoreInvokeHandler.InvokeEventHandler(UInt32 typeIndex, Delegate handlerDelegate, Object sender, Object args)
   at MS.Internal.JoltHelper.FireEvent(IntPtr unmanagedObj, IntPtr unmanagedObjArgs, Int32 argsTypeIndex, Int32 actualArgsTypeIndex, String eventName, UInt32 flags)

I added that remote site to Trusted sites but still the same error. Is it possible to use this library (Windows Certificate Store) in-browser on a remote site?
