It looks like some tooling error. Do you have any old installations of Silverlight? Can you try to uninstall everyithing related to Silverlight - SDK, Runtime, VStool and then to install a fresh copy of all these components.
PS: I assume that your are not seeing XAML preview even without the Telerik controls for Silverlight. Right?
All the best,
