I've just finished installing Visual Studio 2010 professional onto Vista. But don't seem to have Silverlight 4.

If I try to create a new project I can see Silverlight project templates but only seem to be able to target Silverlight 3.

Is Silverlight 4 not part of vs2010 pro by default?

I also noticed the msbuild targets is missing ie the v4.0 folder doesn't exist at the following folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\Silverlight\

Any help/thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thanks Chris

Correct. The SL4 SDK and tools is an add on (and will be available "in a few hours").

Update: "Silverlight Tools Released"
