Visual Studio 2010 and Silverlight 3

After having installed Visual Studio 2010 I wanted to start developing a Silverlight 3 application. The Silverlight project templates seem available but when trying to create a Silverlight application, I got an error message mentioning that the Silverlight developer runtime wasn’t installed.
To be able to create a Silverlight 3 project I had to download and install the following things:

Visual Studio 2010 comes with some enhancements when it comes to Silverlight 3 application development. You can develop Silverlight applications for different versions of the runtime, meaning that you can choose if you want to develop for Silverlight 2 or Silverlight 3. You can also drag and drop controls from the toolbox onto the Silverlight interface, like for any other type of application.  But there are also some limitations: .NET RIA Services development is not yet available for Visual Studio 2010. You can read more about this in Tim Heuers post.
