Hello

I am trying to build a project in visual studio that someone gave me.  When I open the project, the open command fails with the following error?

The imported project "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\Expression\Blend\Silverlight\v4.0\Microsoft.Expression.Blend.Silverlight.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.

Sure enough, the project is not there, or anywhere else on my system.   How can I get this project?

Thanks

Do you have Expression Blend installed on your machine?   Expression Blend is the new UI designer that's targeted for graphics designers.

You could also get the directory from the person who gave you the project.

I don't have Expression Blend, but I found the SDK for it on the Windows site and installed that.  It helped - I still get the error but now the application builds.

Are you on 64 Bit?  Can you update the project to look at program files?  Can you confirm where it installed?

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

I am on 64-bit and I believe I have full access to the project, but I don't know how to look at program files.  I don't know where it installed.

If you open up "My Computer" (Or Computer in 7) go to your C drive then you should see 2 folders:

Program Files (which house all of your 64 bit programs)
and Program Files (X86) (which are all of your 32 bit programs).

I would look in Program files as well as in the x86 to see if the files are in either place.

Expression Blend SDK addressed the issue for the most part.  Still got the error message in the complie, but the program runs.
