Your book suggests using Expression blend 2.5 with Visual studio 2008 and silverlight 2.0 final. When I installed expression blend 2.5, it corrupted my visual studio xaml viewer. I had to uninstall and reinstall several components.
I believe your book may be incorrect in suggesting Blend 2.5.
I used Expression blend 2.0 and the service pack 1 and this worked fine.
You might want to make this clear to your readers.

Re: Expression Blend 2.5 did Not work with Visual Studio 2008
Hmmm...

I'm sorry to hear this. However, I have been usng Blend 2.5 and Visual Studio 2008 with support for Silverlight 2 without any problems.

I will be creating a fresh maching at the first the year. I'll revisit this issue at that time.

Thank you for reading. I hope you have enjoyed the book.

Hi Chad, I find the book useful and well written. I am very happy with the content. Because I am an old fart, I find the font a bit difficult to read and I would have preferred larger or darker text with a whiter background.

Keep up the good work.

Expression Blend 2.0 with SP1 contains the Silverlight 2 support that was originally in 2.5 which was a beta. Blend 2.0 with SP1 is the production product.

HTH,
