install won't detect Silverlight 5 rc tools for Visual Studio 2010 installation

    Question

  • I am attempting to install Microsoft Media Platform Media Editor.

    I am running Win7 64 bit.

    Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate SP1

    I have installed Silverlight 5(64 bit) never had the beta or RC version of Silverlight 5 installed.

    I get the the message [Not Installed] Microsoft Silverlight 5 RC Runtime.  I would install the SL 5 RC if it was still available.

    I was able to find the SL5 RC Tools for VS2010 and install it. Any suggestions looks like this code needs to be refreshed since the the final version of SL5 has been made available.

  • You are right, I downloaded Microsoft Media Platform Video Editor (formerly RCE) and tried to install it, it keep warnning me to install Microsoft Silverlight RC runtime.

    But after serveral attempts (uninstall and reinstall Silverlight 5 RC runtime it provides, reboot Windows, tried previous or latest version of Microsoft Media Platform Video Editor, download Silverlight 5 RC runtime from Silverlight.net or microsoft.com ... ), finally I install it successfully. Here is the lastest try I did which works for me:

    1. Remove Microsoft Silverlight from Programs and Features in Control Panel;
    2. Download Microsoft Silverlight 5 RC Tools for Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 and install it;
    3. Run InstallWin7.bat within \MMPVideoEditor-V2-SL5Refresh-Binaries\setupBinaries folder as Administrator.

    I don't know why the Silverlight 5 RC runtime installed by Microsoft Silverlight 5 RC Tools can pass its validation, anyway it works fine now.

    Here is a good link that may help you. If you still failed to install it, please let me know.

  • Hi, have you install Silverlight plugin? You can download mostly of your software from here: http://www.silverlight.net/downloads 

    I have installed Silverlight 3 sdk, Silverlight 4 sdk, toolkit and Silverlight 5 sdk, plugin on my Windows 7 enterprise, all of them work fine for me. So please make your Silverlight plugin is lastest, that is enough.

    Any thing unsure, please feel free to let me know.

  • Yes I have the latest Silverlight plugin installed. From what the message shows it wants the RC version of the Silverlight 5 not Silverlight 5.

    It provides a link to the runtime I click install and it tells me that 64 bit version is already installed. I have removed the runtime and install the runtime again from the link provided and I still get the error. The Media Platform Editor install kicks back the same error.

  • I tried your suggested install method, I was able to get pass the Silverlight 5 RC issue. However the install produced another error once the install was competed.

    error MSB4019

    I will see what I can find out on my own as well.

    I tried the previous version of the RCE and didn't have any issues with the install.

  • I followed the steps you suggested.

    I ran the  InstallWin7.bat within \MMPVideoEditor-V2-SL5Refresh-Binaries\setupBinaries folder as Administrator.

    It appears to have loaded correctly, but I don't see MMP application to start running.

    Do I have to install the MMP Video Editor 2.0 Silverligh 5 Refresh Source Code - 2012-04-12 as well?

  • Hi, Microsoft Media Platform Video Editor, formerly known as Silverlight Rough Cut Editor, is a web based video editor that can be used to visually create Smooth Streaming Composite Manifests or edit decision lists (EDLs). After the installation I can't found any folder or application icon from start button too (my whole installation did not throw any error message). For more information about MMP Video Editor, please refer to: http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MIX/MIX11/MED05 

    A short cut was created on the desktop for http://rce.contoso.com/ which gives me this message:

    The error message you posted is not the matter of MMP Video Editor or Silverlight, it is throwed out by http://rec.contoso.com/.

  • The binariy install created the link and the site in IIS rce.contoso.com. I have fun control under secirity settings in IIS over the site.

    Since MMPV is web based then the site http://rce.contoso.com is the localhost version of the appication?

    I have tried both the binary install and the source code install.

    I get an install error from the sourcecode install

  • I was able to load the MMP Video Editor 2.0 Silverligh 5 Refresh Source Code - 2012-04-12 without getting the command line error. I had to go back to the previous version of the Windows Azure Tools 1.6. I get the message the install was successful I just can't seem to load MMP Video Editor.

    I still have the issue with the binary version of MMP Video Editor of the local web site it created but won't let me access http://rce.contoso.com
