After installing Silverlight 3 SDK GDR can I still work with Visual Studio 2008 on Silverlight 3 solutions?
Am assuming Sharepoint templates are not available with VWD Express 2010 beta 2(atleast i didnt find any when I installed beta 2).
Or is this a question for sharepoint team?
@Jesus, yes the Silverlight 3 SDK GDR works with Visual Studio 2008, Visual Studio 2010, Expression Blend, and MSBuild
Sriram, unfortunately sharepoint development is not supported in VWD Express 2010... You will have to have the full SKU for that...!!
