[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

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.”

  • 0x80072EE2 is definitely a network error and is most likely downloading the developer runtime.

  • Hi Amy,

    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.

  • @Raju send me an email and we'll see if we can get this figured out.  amy.dullard at microsoft.com

    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.
