I have to learn working on Silver light application of VS2010. I have never used VS Studio before. When i try to install VS 2010 from this link http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23691 . It gives an error that "Setup has detected that this computer doen't meet the requirement to install this software The following blocking issues must be resolved before you can install microsoft VS2010 service pack1 soft. package"and inside the menu I have
"Installation Requirements: A compatible version of Visual Studio 2010 was not detected on the system. This update is designed for only the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010."
I have installed nothing prior to this VS 2010 installation unsuccessful try. Could any one please answer following questions ?
What should i install prior to this vs 2010 installation ?
Currently i have checked in "Uninstall a program of Window 7" I have nothing installed like SDKs etc.I even don't what is it used for ?Why do we need it ?
Actually if VS 2010 is installed successfully then i have to work on silver light using c# and xaml. Could anyone please suggest me appropriate version installation according to my work ? Thanks in advance foe all this help.
