Visual Studio 2008 with Windows Phone 7 Tools RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have VS 2008 sp1.  I'm going to a Windows Phone 7 Developer Launch.  The confirmation e-mail said to download the toolkit which says:

    The Windows Phone Developer Tools includes the following

    • Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone
    • Windows Phone Emulator Resources
    • Silverlight 4 Tools For Visual Studio
    • XNA Game Studio 4.0
    • Microsoft Expression Blend for Windows Phone

    Can't I use 2008 to build apps for Windows Mobile 7?  If so would you please let me know the url to download the toolkit for 2008?  If there isn't one, are there any known issues with 2008 after installing the above?

    Thank you in advance,
