I have a SL5 project that I can open in blend4 but that is pretty much where it stops.
I cannot switch to design nor split view.
I have tried adding the line:
to the .csproj
but to no avail.

Hi FC Malan,
Are you using the Blend Preview for Silverlight 5? If not, please install the preview and use it to edit your SL5 project. The Blend Preview for SL5 includes a go-live license and is appropriate for production work.
We also recently released the Blend + SketchFlow Preview for Visual Studio 2012. It is intended for evaluation and feedback only, and does not include a go-live license.

Thank you for the quick responses.
I will download blend 5 preview. I really appreciate the help.

Can you explain what a lack of a 'go-live license' means? Does that mean that the product cannot be used on production code, both to edit and to compile?
