READ: Installation issues with Windows Phone tools and Silverlight 4


  • Problem: The installation of Windows Phone Developer Tools (WPDT) will fail if you have previously installed the latest update of Silverlight 4, which was published to Microsoft Update on Thursday 6/3, versioned 4.0.50524.0. This failure occurs when WPDT setup attempts to install Silverlight 4. 

    WPDT Versions Impacted: April CTP and April CTP refresh

    How to work around the issue:
    If you run into this error while trying to install latest WPDT , you can solve it by doing the following:

    1. Go to the Programs and Feature control panel. 
    2. Locate the item named Microsoft Silverlight and uninstall it.
    3. Re-run WPDT setup.

    This issue will be addressed in a future release of the Windows Phone Developer Tools.
