1. What could be happen?

2. Is it any special setting when you are using Spanish Windows XP ?

3. Can this solution  run in a Visual Studio 2008 Express?

Thanks

Did you download the latest release or the latest checkin?

Latest release is Silverlight 3 and Visual Studio 2008.

Latest checkin is Silverlight 4 beta and Visual Studio 2010.

Thanks for answering. 

I downloaded Silverlight Multi File Uploader v3.0, but it seems that mpost.SilverlightMultiFileUpload.csproj works with Framework 4.0, which is still Beta. I say that because it uses class  <vsm:VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups> which is not compatible with Framework 3.5.

Which version should I download to run in a Visual Studio 2008, Framework 3.5, Windows XP Professional and WPFToolkit version 3.5.40128.1 ?

You're talking about "WPFToolkit version 3.5.40128.1", maybe you're mixing up WPF and Silverlight? You should install the Silverlight Toolkit to be able to open this project.

See here for details:
http://www.silverlight.net/getstarted/

The Silverlight Multi File Uploader v3.0 release should work fine with VS2008 and Silverlight 3. It was uploaded before SL4 or VS2010 were even released.

Ok. I installed Microsoft Silverlight 3 Toolkit November 2009, restart my PC and still same error:

"The project file 'C:\Progs\SilverlightMultiFileUpload\SilverlightMultiFileUploader_v3.0\mpost.SilverlightMultiFileUpload\mpost.SilverlightMultiFileUpload.csproj' cannot be opened .The project type is not supported by this installation"

I've got installed:

- Microsoft Silverlight

- Microsoft Silverlight 3 Toolkit November 2009

- Microsoft Web Platform Installer 2.0

Even if i force to load mpost.SilverlightMultiFileUpload.csproj, I got 11 errors.

Should I  reference something else on csproj?

The problems are with the xaml files: Page, MessageChildWindow and FileRowControl

On References, I can't find this dll:

"clr-namespace:System.Windows.Controls;assembly=System.Windows.Controls.Data"

 

"clr-namespace:System.Windows;assembly=System.Windows"

On References, I find like:

System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Toolkit

System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Toolkit.Design

System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Toolkit.Expression.Design

System.Windows.Controls.DataVisualization.Toolkit.VisualStudio.Design
