  • Hello everyone, I was working on blend 4 so far and I just downloaded the Blend Preview for SilverLight 5. Now the project (VS2010) which I was working on in blend 4 does not open in blend 5 and I get this error. The target frame work is not supported in Blend Preview for SilverLight 5! Any idea whats wrong? Thanks in advance :)

  • No, I was saying you can open and edit your project in VS Express. After the 60 day trial you can't use Blend for WPF/SL unless you pay for it in some way, either through MSDN or a retail copy.

  • Your VS2010/Blend 4 solution is probably a SL4 project and the preview release only supports SL 5. The target framework in your solution is Silverlight 4, which is unsupported by the preview.

  • Open it in Blend 4? Is there a reason you can't open it there?

  • Yes I was using a trial version and 60 days of trial period ran out. Don't want to buy new as there is not much left to do except a few fixes! So thought blend 5 can solve my problem.

  • You can use VS Express, which is free.
