Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools and Existing Visual Studio 2010 Install - How?

Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 developer site that contains the following:

* Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone CTP
* Windows Phone Emulator CTP
* Silverlight for Windows Phone CTP
* XNA Game Studio 4.0 CTP

I already have Visual Studio 2010 installed. Will the installer use my existing installation of VS2010 and add to it or will it install an Express edition alongside it? I really wouldn't want the latter.


You'll get express with it, but you can safely ignore it. There is no option to avoid this that I've come across.

Whilst Express will install, it won't install shortcuts or interfere with your paid VS install and has minimal impact.
