  • Question

  • Previosuly I had SL2 and i removed it after installing the toolkit for SL3 I cannot see the project templates in VS2008SP1. Even if I go tho VS2008 templates folder there is no silverlight folders.

    I also tried to use the Web Platform Installer in fails with error code 1603 the log is as follows:-

     

    DownloadManager Information: 0 : Starting EXE install for product 'Silverlight 3 Tools for Visual Studio'. Commandline is: 'C:\Documents and Settings\Anthony\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Web Platform Installer\installers\Silverlight3_Tools.exe /q'

  • I solved the problem by uninstalling any silverlight 3, restarted computer and installed using silverlight3_tools.exe instead of the Silverlight_3_Toolkit_July_2009.msi now everything is running, similar to what Ken suggested, the exe file is not easily seen that is why I went for the MSI in the first place..
