WCF RIA Services Beta and WCF RIA Services Preview for Visual Studio 2010
At PDC 2009, ScottGu have announced the release of WCF RIA Services Beta, that works with Visual Studio 2008 SP1/Visual Web Developer SP1. You can download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=76bb3a07-3846-4564-b0c3-27972bcaabce&displaylang=en
This MSI itself is not localized, however, you can install it to eight non-ENU VS/VWD 2008 SP1 on top of Silverlight 3. The eight non-ENU platforms are:
CHS, DEU, FRA, ITA, ESN, KOR, JPN and CHT.
We also shipped a WCF RIA Services preview for Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 at PDC. This preview targets Silverlight 4 and please give it a try at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9fa8afe9-cad6-4090-a7f6-7d9cdc560e2d&displaylang=en
Note that the Silverlight4_Tools_ENU.exe will skip the installation of RIA Services, if it detects that a previous version of RIA Services has been installed to the same machine. So if you have July CTP RIA services installed, uninstall it first before running the Silverlight 4 chainer. The chainer will then install Silverlight 4 beta runtime, SDK, tools, VS tool patch and WCF RIA Services preview to work with Dev10 beta 2.
