Silverlight 2.0 Beta 2 Tools for Visual Studio 2008 Install Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running VS 2008 Team Trial SP1 on Vista SP1 and can't get the tools to install into VS. The installer is not finding VS. SL2 and the SDK went in OK.

    Log message is:

    Created new ExePerformer for Exe item

    [6/17/2008, 8:56:35] Action complete

    Manually running VS_SilverlightTools_Beta2_Setup.exe  gives this message:

    "You must install the final release version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 before installing Silverlight Tools."

    What can I do?
