I wonder if Chiron tried to reference the JScript binaries because the 
app directory had a '.js' file?

In either case I have completely failed to get Chiron to do 'the right 
thing' with creating my 'xap'
files and ended up building them by hand.

The pattern I used was to have 'Chiron.exe' (with all the assemblies etc 
that come from dynamicsilverlight.net which is the version I'm using) in 
a bin subdirectory. I was using it on Windows Vista and added the bin 
directory to the path. I would then invoke it in the following way:

    chiron /d:path/to/example/app /x:another/path/to/output

It would create 'xap' files, but not put the assemblies *or* a manifest 
in them. I gave up trying to use it.
