Laurent Bugnion (GalaSoft) Diary of a Code Trotter

Now that my site has been cleaned up, I want to add Silverlight content to it soon. I blogged about my plans here, and first of all I need to download all the development environment. That also includes Orcas (Visual Studio 2007) which is currently still in Beta. I didn't install it before because Microsoft told us that it was a bad idea to install it on a non-virtual machine, and that uninstalling it was very difficult. Since the last Beta 1 version, however, things are better and I have been told that it's OK to install VS2005 and VS2007 on the same machine. So that's my plan!

The download is huge (5.2GB) (yes, gigabytes!), so better plan a lot of time for this!

I followed the Get Started instructions, and here is what I downloaded:

You'll probably also want to download two "designers" tools, which I had already on my PC:

One thing I am not sure about is if Silverlight 1.0 material is included in the 1.1 files I downloaded or not. In case it's not, you can also download the following:

I won't start with the installation now, because it's too late to get dragged into it (see, I do have a will!), but I foresee a big day tomorrow ;-)
