Silverlight 1.0 project template for VS 2008

September 24, 2007

If you’re like me and enjoying Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2, you may notice that the Silverlight templates included with the Silverlight Tools for VS2008 are focused on the 1.1 alpha.  This is great, but what if you dig Silverlight 1.0 and still want to use the latest and greatest from Visual Studio land?

You’re in luck!  All you have to do is borrow the project template from the Silverlight 1.0 SDK.  If you have already installed Visual Studio 2005 then you can install the SDK and find the project template via the file path below:

...\Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#\Silverlight\SilverlightJSApplication.zip

If you’re not running Visual Studio, I’ve posted the template on my server, so you can download the template directly.

Once you have your hands on the template, copy the .zip file into the template directory for VS2008:

...\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#

Now when you add a New Project you should see a “Silverlight Javascript Application” option below My Templates, which is pictured below.
