Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta and Silverlight Tools Beta 1

Important note for folks who are planning to try the beta of Visual Studio 2008 SP1:

Microsoft Silverlight Tools Beta 1 for Visual Studio 2008 is not compatible with Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta.   The good news is that Silverlight Tools Beta 2 for Visual Studio 2008 SP1 is coming soon.  Until then you will not be able to install both Silverlight Tools and Visual Studio 2008 SP1.

Until Silverlight Tools Beta 2 ships you'll need to uninstall Silverlight Tools Beta 1 to evaluate Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta.  Likewise, if you've already installed Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta then you'll need to uninstall it before installing Silverlight Tools Beta 1.

    great would it have been better if Microsoft launchs the Silverlight tool first and then the SP 1???? now i have SP1, but cannot do anything on my silverlight project. so when is it going to be available?

    @wahyu – I don’t know the exact release date, but I understand your frustration. Best I can tell you is that it’s hard enough coordinating the release of multiple released products, with betas it can be downright impossible, so you have to make some hard decisions.

    I’m sure it won’t be very long. I’ll definitely post something if I get word of the release date for the updated Silverlight tools.
