  1. Unzip the package into your favorite location, say C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v3.0\Libraries\BiDi.
  2. Add the reference to BidiControls.dll into your VS or Blend project and ensure its "Copy Local" property is set to True. (that is default for Blend)
  3. Add the namespace to xaml. Name it, say, "bidi", i.e. <xmlns :bidi="clr-namespace:System.Windows.BidiControls;assembly=BidiControls">. Mention that clr-namespace here is replaced from NBiDi to System.Windows.BiDiControls.
  4. Use the assets, say <bidi:TextBlock Text="שחר" />
