  • You need to use Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5 for Silverlight 5 projects. Blend 4 will not open SL5 designer views.

  • It took me 1/2 hour to find this out...  and some co workers have spent time looking at it as well.

    I love this logic:

    If( !Silverlight.Version.IsSupported)
    {
        Fail("silently");
    }


    EDIT: I get the problem in blend 5 0 30514 ... project opens, and xaml files only open in xaml view. :(
