    Install of the beta on a fresh install of VS2010 /w SP1 Beta results in the Telerik Beta install to warn the Silverlight 4 Tools are not installed. 

    This is a more common problem with the SL Tools installer itself I think, as if you try install it with VS 2010 SP1 Beta already installed, you will get this error as well:

    Visual Studio 2010 or Visual Web Developer Express 2010 or Visual Phone Developer Express 2010 that matches the language version of Silverlight Tools 4 must be installed before installation of Silverlight Tools can continue.

    If you open the first log file, you will find the error at the bottom.


    Installation Blockers: 
        1) Visual Studio 2010 or Visual Web Developer Express 2010 or Visual Phone Developer Express 2010 that matches the language version of Silverlight Tools 4 must be installed before installation of Silverlight Tools can continue.  Silverlight Tools is available in other languages at <A HREF="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=177432">http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=177432</A>.



    However, in the MS catch-22 rule of descriptive install errors, the real 'issue' is that the SL 4 Tools are already installed as part of VS 2010 SP1 Beta, and they don't need to be installed.

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks indeed for the notice!
    We will do our best to work these around for the official release of RadControls for Silverlight.

    Please, find your Telerik account updated.

    Kind regards,
