Building My first Windows Phone 7 App: How To Install Silverlight For Windows Phone?

100719-windows-phone-7-8a_grid-6x2

I have decided to get a little bit of "hands-on" experience with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Developers Tools.

I decided I will create a series of posts about my experience as a developer for Windows Phone 7. I still don't know what my goals are or what kind of app will I build eventually, but I figured it would be an interesting experience for me and my readers, here, a the mobile spoon.

First thing's first: Installing the Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools.

I downloaded it from here: Download Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools, and tried to install…. BOOK, got this ugly message box:

uninstallvisualstudio2010beta2_thumb

Visual Studio setup cannot run in compatibility mode. For more information see the 'Installing' section in the

Visual Studio Readme at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=143397.

Great… Now what?

No worries, boys and girls, I found a solution… (Funny how Google actually helped me solve my Microsoft problem…) here it is:

You need to remove the compatibility mode from the file you are trying to install. It is done by right clicking the file, selecting "properties" and going to the "compatibility" tab and un-checking the compatibility checkbox.

Simple.

Now my installation is running, and I cannot wait to open my first Windows Phone 7 Project… I bet it will look like this…
