Issue running Expression Blend 4 for Windows Phone 7.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Expression Blend was working fine until I downloaded a trail version of the full blown version. 

    That version trail ended and I installed the Windows Phone 7.1 Expression Blend.

    Now when I start I get the following:

    Since the Windows Phone version is free I assume this is an issue!!

    Then when Expression Blend starts there is none of the directories and/or files associated with my WP7 program solution.

    Refer to image below:

    I just attended one of Microsofts Windows Phone Boot Camp in Minn. and would like to try this, but cannot.

    What gives?

    Thanks for your help.

  • That is the right version number for WP7.1, what type of project are you trying to open in the screenshot above? Is is a WP7 project or a regular WPF/SL project?

  • Its a WP7 project I'm trying to open the same way they did in the Windows Phone Boot Camp on Thurs last week, by clicking on "Expression Blend" from the solution menu within VS2010.
