    I'm at a loss and pretty confused. A website I need in order to do my upcoming job ends in .xbap. So far it seems like I cannot. I don't have a Windows OS or anything.
    Does anyone know? Any programs I can download?

    A quick search here reveals that XBAP is Microsoft Silverlight-related, and is thus un-modifiable on your Mac, since, as far as I know, no Silverlight development tools exist for non-Windows OSes.

    http://mono-project.com/Moonlight will maybe be a viable solution in the future but for now it doesn't have a SDK. You'll need a copy of Windows (+VM software) and VS to work with it for now.
