This article describes how to install the Silverlight Toolkit and then add a reference to the tool kit DLLs in your Visual Studio project.

When I initially installed Silverlight Toolkit I couldn't where the installer placed the files. After some investigation I discovered the Toolkit files were installed to:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight.

Here's the install instructions from A-Z.

  1. Surf to http://silverlight.codeplex.com.
  2. Click on Downloads menu item.
  3. Click on the download link below Recommended Download.
    Select download link #1 for the binaries in an MSI file.
    Select download link #2 for the source code in a ZIP file.
  4. The file downloads to your computer.
  5. Double-click on the MSI file.
  6. Follow the installation instructions.
