Default Setting up Environment


I have just started on this book and am trying to set up the correct environment as advised on page 37.

I have installed almost all the software except Microsoft Expression Blend and Visual Studio 2010.

Can someone please confirm:

1) Is there a particular version of Expression Blend do I need
2) I take it that it the freely available Visual Studio 2010 Express will not be suitable.

Appreciate any help you can give me.

Default Setting Up the Environment

Use Expression Blend 4. You can get a 30-day trial from here: http://expression.microsoft.com/en-us/cc507094.aspx.

Also, one of the easiest ways to get a set-up is to:

1) Download the IW VM and then use the samples against this: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/steve_fox/ar...fice-2010.aspx

2) Download the Easy Set-up Script here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/pstubbs/arch...up-script.aspx

And you require a full install of VS 2010, not the Express. Stick to the Premium or above SKU.

Hope this helps.
