[Edited to included updated Silverlight 3 Tools]
When the Silverlight Tools fail to install, a log file is generated with error codes and messages. You can open this log file from the last screen of the installer. Or, you can find this log file in your %TEMP% directory under the name Silverlight Tools RTW_[installation date and time].html or Silverlight 3.0 Tools_[installation date and time].html
Silverlight Tools Installer
Web Platform Installer
Open this log file and look at the end to find the exit code and messaging about why the installer failed. It may say something like “Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x80072EE5).” or “Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x1), Incorrect function.”
Manually uninstall “Microsoft Silverlight” from Add/Remove Programs and run the installer again

Delete the files in your Temp folder
Create a folder called "Silverlight 3.0 Tools Beta 1"
Copy the Silverlight.3.0_Developer.exe file to this folder
Run the installer
Juste la honte pour Microsoft puisque c'est un bug connu déjà sous la 2.0 et qui n'est
I am still getting same error code 0x80072EE2, after deleting temp folder content, Creating "Silverlight 3.0 Tools Beta 1" folder, Copy the Silverlight.3.0_Developer.exe file to above folder,Run the installer.
Is this the firewall Issue, which might be blocking from downloading the developer runtime? Or any other issue.
Please help me.

I solved this problem by stopping the "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" and re-trying the installing.
It seems the installer tries to download using BITS and fails.
After that I restarted the BITS service.
Thank you very much for this. It helped me a lot.
