Silverlight - The project type is not supported by this installation

Launch a command window, navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio x\Common7\IDE (where x is the version number) and run:

devenv /setup

If you're using Visual Studio 2008, try downloading the latest Silverlight Tools.

Thanks buddy, this sorted me out 100%, I assume it tells studio to recheck for modules/addin etc.

After a reinstall all SL project would not load until I ran your fix

I can't tell you how much I love you. I've spent the past 5 hours uninstalling and reinstalling components to try and get my Silverlight projects to load again... and THIS is all it took.

Thank you thank you thank you!

OK I'm the guy this isn't working for. Any other ideas?

I have VS 2010 Ultimate and I downloaded Silverlight like 20 minutes ago.

I have also tried: 'devenv.exe /resetskippkgs' with no love.

I don't understand how do you run devenv /setup ?

There is a devenv.exe in the folder? I click on it, launches VS... so what?

Thanks. It's works.
In my case (Windows 7) i had to run command line as administrator.
