  • Hi woody,

    Yes, you can develop Silverlight 4 and Silveright 5 project at the same time in different projects.

    I have installed both Silverlight 4 and Silverlight 5 SDKs on my machine and when I create a new Silverlight project, it will let me choose which version of Silverlight.

    But please not, you need to install the Silverlight 4 before installing Silverlight 5. Because if you install Silverlight 5 first, it will prompt you that there has high version of Silverlight installed when installing Silverlight 4.

  • Sigh. Of course you must.

    Hopefully uninstalling the Silverlight 5 SDK will let me install the SL4 SDK.

    Thanks for the positive answer tho - maybe there's hope for this yet!
