Go Live License for Microsoft.Expression.Interactions built with VS2012 targetting .Net 4‏; Which SDK and where? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing a .Net 4 (not 4.5) WPF desktop application using Visual Studio 2012 and using Blend Preview for VS2012 and the code has an interaction/trigger/behavoir which requires a reference to the Microsoft.Expression.Interactions assembly found in the blend sdk.

    When I hand the solution off to the build process the build fails due to that assembly not being installed and this is where the confusion comes in. According to the blend insider about Blend Versions, I can use Blend 4's go live license while the blend 5 preview for WPF does not have a go live license.

    Ok so the redistributable assembly should be on the Microsoft Expression Blend Software Development Kit (SDK) for .NET 4. That redistributable states the version it will install is 2.0.20525 but the version of the dll in my project is v4.0.30319 and comes from (Microsoft SDKs\Expression\Blend\.NETFramework\v4.0\Libraries).

    What do I need to install to on the build machine to make everyone happy and be in compliance with the Go-Live license?

  • You have the correct link above. 

    2.0.20525 is the build number for the SDK released with Blend 4 RTM. 4.0.30319 is the version number from .Net 4, not sure where that is displayed, but it might be because that is the version of the underlying platform assemblies?
