    Hi Telerik Team,

    Today, I tried to create a WP7 VB project using Telerik Radcontrols (VS2010), but the project creaation failed with the following error message:  "Visual Basic for Windows Phone Developer Tools could not be detected. Please install Visual Basic for Windows Phone Developer Tools."  I'm selecting the FILE -> NEW PROJECT -> TELERIK -> SILVERLIGHT FOR WINDOWS PHONE -> VB RadControls...

    I'm using the latest Windows Phone developer tools (mango beta 2 refresh) which has VB support integrated. Also WP7 Radcontrols version is Q2 2011 712.1037.
    By the way, with C# there is no such problem. Some kind of install error?

    Kind regards,

    Hello Wolfshund,

     Thank you for writing.
    This is most likely a bug in the beta development tools. We are not doing special on our side to support vb. If we had to do this something would be wrong with the Windows Phone .NET framework. You can downgrade to a previous version of the mango tools in order to use VB, at least until the final tools are available. You can also try to reinstall the development environment. Maybe reinstalling only the Windows Phone development tools will solve the problem.

    Please write again if you have other questions.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
