I wanted to play around with Silverlight 5 on Visual Studio '11, but it is not yet supported. The await and async keyword work in a Console App. I've tried to install the Visual Studio Async CTP for Visual studio 2010 (SP1 refresh) by performing the regex hack, but it won't install my files. I probably just need this AsyncCtpLibrary_Silverlight.dll file.
Is this somewhere on the system already? Or do I really need to have the package installed to get that?

I'm not aware of anyone getting Async CTP to work with Silverlight 5 RC; when the Async CTP was released, SL 5 was in Beta (and did work). So, I think you're out of luck, at least until SL5 is supported on VS2011.
I certainly would not apply Async CTP to VS2011 at all. I'm not sure why you'd try.
There's several conflicts in what you're attempting: VS2011 (developer preview) introduces async; Async CTP modifies the VS2010SP1 compiler to include async and adds Task types to Silverlight; Silverlight 5 (RC) adds Task types to Silverlight. None of these are actually released or officially supported technologies.

I just installed Silverlight 5 RC and now Async CTP (which worked great with Silverlight 5 Beta) no longer works. This is a serious problem for me as my project depended on Async CTP. Does ANYONE have an answer for this?
