Windows Phone 7: Install Windows Phone 7.1 SDK

Welcome, to a Windows Phone 7.1 (WP7) Apps Development Series, I’ll be covering quite a lot about the WP7 and building different samples with C#.
 
However, before you begin make sure you have:
 

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Installed.
  • Windows Phone SDK 7.1 Installed.

 

Download: Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
Download: Windows Phone SDK 7.1
 
Install everything. :)
 
Step 1: SP1 for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
 

 
Step 2: Complete the Windows Phone SDK 7.1 installation, and check your Start Menu for new tools installed by the SDK
 

 
Step 3: Launch Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, and you’ll see new project templates added
 

 
Step 4: Create one sample, and hit F5 to launch it inside the Windows Phone Emulator
 

 
That’s it for this time…enjoy!
