Installing Silverlight 2 Beta2

This past week Microsoft released Silverlight 2.0 beta2, however installing the new version hasnt always been the easiest thing to do. After struggling away and getting install errors here my advice on the best way to get SL2 Beta 2 installed.


  • Uninstall all current Silverlight installs
    • Silverlight runtime
    • Silverlight 2 Beta 1 SDK
    • Silverlight Tools for VS
  • Uninstall Visual Studio KB949325 update
    • Use the control panel add/remove programs
    • "View installed Updates"
    • Remove the KB949325 update
  • Download & install Silverlight chained installer here

The chained installed holds all the installs needed to get developing with the new version of Silverlight, holding the Silverlight 2 Beta 2 runtime, SDK and also the tools for Visual Studio.


Now with everything installed, it's time to get developing. :D
