I’m working on a little side project which has just ground totally to a halt.
i’ve done all the research, all the tutorials and it’s about time to put it all together…and then..durrr…not going to happen just yet.
I wanted to create a silverlight sidebar gadget and thought i’d use Expression Blend, Silverlight and VS2008 “Orcas”.
Well, to create a Silverlight application in “Orcas” you need the Silverlight Visual Studio extension for version 1.1 Alpha.
To create a Silverlight project in Expression Blend, you need Silverlight 1.0.
Unfortunately version 1.1 Alpha is NOT backwards compatible with version 1.0 in terms that version 1.1 Alpha will not allow you to create a Silverlight project in Expression Blend.
Bummer i say..I guess i have to wait till Silverlight catches up..or Blend catches up..
either way, it’s on the backburner for now – been trawling the interweb to locate a solution, but so far it’s a no-go.
