Just a bunch of nits, many probably due to the changes in Silverlight 2 Beta 2:

* Page 16, step 3 of walkthrough 1.1 - choose "Silverlight Application", not "Silverlight Project"

* Page 16, step 4 of walkthrough 1.1 - seems like the folder should be c:Silverlight 2 In Action, as that's the name of your book.

* Page 16, steps 5 and 6 are blank / empty?

* Page 16 - after step 4 it asks if I want to Add a new Web to the solution for hosting the control or dynamically generate an HTML test page to host Silverlight within this project. The book should tell us which to choose. I left it as default.

* Page 16 - after step 8 my Page.xaml file didn't have a Canvas. Instead it had
<UserControl x:Class="Welcome.Page" >
Width="400" Height="300">
<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">


After putting the MediaElement within the Grid, it didn't work when I went to run it. I get MediaError #4001. Ideas on how to fix it?

Re: A bunch of nits on page 16, walkthrough 1.1
Hi bminer1,

Thank you for your comments. You are correct in stating that the items you are seeing are due to changes in Beta 2. I am actually going through each chapter right now and making the necessary changes.

Thank you for pointing these out though.
