I’ve received some question from my friends of "How to create a Silverlight project in Visual Studio?"
Well, by default, you can’t create a Silverlight project in Visual Studio. But all you need is just to get some add-ons and install it. Then start developing your Silverlight project.
Follow the steps below:
  1. Install Visual Studio 2008 SP1 or Visual Web Developer Express with SP1
  2. Download Silverlight Tools for Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and install it.
  3. Install Microsof Expression Blend 2 and then install Microsoft Expression Blend 2 Service Pack 1
  4. Install Deep Zoom Composer
  5. Download Silverlight Toolkit
  6. Download Silverlight Runtime for Windows OR Silverlight Runtime for Mac
