Yes, they do- you should use sp2 if you're targetting Silverlight 3, and sp3 if you're target is Silverlight 4.

Hello,

How is possible to create Silverlight Application using Silverlight 4 and Visula Studio 2008? When creating a New Project, on installed templates, the VS2008 doesn't have Silverlight as an option. As I have read Microsoft will support Visual Studio 2008 for Silverlight 4 development as they have only added the support in Visual Studio 2010 for both SL3 & SL4. There is no tools for VS2008.
(Source is here http://forums.silverlight.net/forums/p/156538/350841.aspx).
Please help me; I really want to use VS2008 and Silverlight4 insteed of VS2010.

Thank you.

Maria

You can't use Studio 2008 to build Silverlight 4 apps- Studio 2008 doesn't support Silverlight 4, I'm afraid. You'll need to use Silverlight 3 or use Stuido 2010.

Thank you Stephen for your reply.
So ComponentArt.UI.Framework.2010.1.sp3 is used to target Silverlight 3 and VS2008?
(Is it a mistake in a previous post where you said "you should use sp3 if you're target is Silverlight 4." ?)

Regards.

Nope, not a mistake- if you're targeting Silverlight 4 you want to use SP3 for UI.Framework 2010. If you're targeting Silverlight 3, you want to use SP2 of the same product. You can get both from our download page (scroll to the bottom). I hope this helps.
