This package is an add-on for Visual Studio 2008 SP1 to provide tooling for Microsoft Silverlight 3. It can be installed on top of either Visual Studio 2008 SP1 or Visual Web Developer 2008 Express with SP1, and it provides a Silverlight project system for developing Silverlight applications using C# or Visual Basic. Note: One of the prerequisites for Silverlight 3 Tools for Visual Studio is the installation of the Visual Web Developer feature in Visual Studio 2008 SP1. If VWD is not already installed with your instance of Visual Studio, you can add the feature in Visual Studio's Maintenance Mode. Open Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel. Right click on Visual Studio 2008 and choose Remove/Change. This will bring up Maintenance Mode. On the second screen, Choose Add or Remove Features. Check the box next to Visual Web Developer (also, make sure you Visual C# and/or Visual Basic also installed) and click the Update button.
