Location of OOB xap file in local file system

Everybody knows that there is Out of browser support in Silverlight 3 and Silverlight 4.Basically how it is working? Its simple.It downloads the xap file into a local folder and runs the xap from that location as similar to in browser.But with some more privileges.

All that are fine.So to which location the xap files is getting downloaded in my local machine? It’s very easy to find out.Right click on the OOB application icon in desktop and get select properties.You can get the application id.Using that application id you can find the application folder in the Out-of-browser cache in the below location.

C:\Users\<login id>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Silverlight\OutOfBrowser
