Expression Blend 4 without buying Studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm guessing no, but is there anyway to just buy Expression Blend and not have to buy all that other stuff I have no use for in the whole Studio package?  I just want to create silverlight animations.

    If you are just doing windows phone development (sounds like that isn't the case) Blend is free as part of the Windows Phone tools download.

  • Actually I did have it as part of the windows phone development, but I think I did something to try to upgrade it, so I'm on a 60 day trial now.  Should I uninstall blend and re-install the windows phone development?  I'm actually 90% business apps with silverlight and 10% phone stuff.

  • The free version of Blend only does phone projects, so you will need the full version for the SL apps. You can get it through msdn, or the retail options.
