After installing VS 2008, I was surprised that I couldn’t find a link to create a Silverlight project. Thanks to Google I found ScottGu’s post where he announces about Silverlight 1.1 Tools Alpha for VS 2008. You can follow a link from Scott’s post or get it from here.
Finally I found time to install Visual Studio 2008 on my Vista machine. However, after loading VS 2008 for the first time I couldn’t create a project. I was getting “Visual Studio has encountered an unexpected error“. I even couldn’t close the application.
