If you want to use MySQL you will need a MySQL server installation in
the client's machine to be able to use the driver and even if you do
have it I don't think you can P/Invoke to the database from
Silverlight (for security reasons). As I understand it, you could only
do this if your whole DB engine is in managed code compiled using the
Silverlight's version of .NET. So I don't think MySQL will work but I
could be wrong.
I don't know the whole scenario of the app you want to create but if
you set the requirements you could use Safari's HTML5 database
capabilities. But your app will only work on Safari. Or db4o sounds
like the perfect match for the job.
