   string xapPath = 
       HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(@"") + @"\" + xapSource;
   DateTime xapCreationDate = System.IO.File.GetLastWriteTime(xapPath);
   VersionDate = xapCreationDate.ToString(new 
         3. Pass date in initParams in object tag.
     <object data="data:application/x-silverlight-2," 
            width="100%" height="100%">
        <param name="source" value="ClientBin/SilverlightTest.xap" />
