Crushes the crappy WPF toolkit. Apparently MS doesn't care about WPF, since it still is lacking almost every nice control. Would it be difficult to compile the source code for the Silverlight toolkit into a WPF binary???

OMG I rate it just to don't let down the rating because of the newbies there not able to do a little research to install and use it! by the way keep up the good work hope to see stable releases on new controls at PDC time :)

Excellent updates, to the people below having trouble: All Programs->Microsoft Silverlight 3 Toolkit July 2009->welcome. There are links there to the directories where the various items are installed as well as links to documentation, samples and web resources. If you can't figure out something still, the forums on the main Silverlight site are a good place to ask questions.

Since most of us are "Nubies" a litle more install help would be great. And there seems to be a known problem with Labels, TextBlocks with the ToolKit Themes. Seems to default to invisible!?.. As a new guy, this takes some of the fun out of a truly great product. Pat Tormey NH USA

The lack of a quick start guide of any sort is a bit frustrating, but the controls in the stable and mature quality bands are very decent. There are some significant issues with the preview band that will cause you lots of grief, especially with themes, so watch out. All in all, a nice resource.

Don't be fooled by the noobs below; this Toolkit is stellar. The silverlight toolkit accentuates silverlight just like the ajax toolkit first did for ASP. I think the charting functionality is particularly well-done, and the other controls fill in some missing pieces from the silverlight base. Just because *you* can't figure out how to use it, doesn't mean it's bad! Keep up the good work.

Yikes! I have to agree. After downloading, no clue where it installed. I'm totally lost as how to proceed. I can't find a walk through on this page whihc just tells me the simplest thing - how do I add a reference to my project so I can start using the controls!?!? I have no idea where this thing installed! I'm sure it is easy once I find it, but I've already spent about 15 minutes hunting around!

I have attempted to install this release on two computers, one running Vista Home Premium, the other Vista Business. On both computers the components are not available in Visual Studio. The Sample Source solution cannot load because The imported project "C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\Silverlight\v3.0\Microsoft.Silverlight.CSharp.targets was not found." I'd rate his 0 stars if I could.
