Cannot see XAML in design view Blend 4
I have installed the full Expression Blend 4 Ultimate package and I am trying to load a Silverlight 5 solution
Although the solution does load I am unable to see anything in design view
This occurs even for a straight forward "out of the box" Navigation Project
I am using VS 2010 SP1
Has anyone had this problem?
I have need mention of ensuring that the project is setup as Silverlight, and ensuring that blend 3 SDK is installed
As far as I can tell, both of these apply
A Silverlight 5 Solution will not load in Expression Blend 4.
You will need to download the Expression Blend 5 Preview:
Please note that it has some bugs which can affect your views, mainly around creating design instances from viewmodels.
