no install / setup in download

description

ok so there may not be a need for a setup program but there should at least be a short text file that tells us where to put the files.
may be a silly question for folks who have done a bunch of silverlight but as a mostly beginer i am trying to figure out where to start.

We're actively perusing building an installer experience for the Silverlight toolkit. There's no need to keep an open voted issue on this.

Thanks for your interest in this issue.

The power of the download package today is that the files are simple binaries. As called out in several of the "getting started" blog posts and guides, like any other downloaded library, the step for using the controls is very, very easy:
  1. Click Add Reference in the Project menu
  2. Browse to the appropriate downloaded control
In the future, we'll definitely investigate some options for integrating the controls in Visual Studio's .NET Add Reference menu and/or toolbox integration.

I am changing this to a feature request; this is not a bug.

sorry i did not mean to ad this as a "bug" My bad i guess....

IMHO it would be good for all of us to have some kind of "recomended file location"
for stuff... for example VS 08 defaults new projects to a user\vs2008\projects\ folder
expresssion how ever defaults to a different folder path user\expression\expression blend\projects
and now we can have other dll's here there and everywhere....
after while it can become a mess....
not all your stuff, it's the effect of all the different teams with different projects .... and no centeral set of rules for where things belong.
