First impression on Silverlight 2.0

As I told there is a fresh new build of Silverlight - Silverlight 2.0. Happy to hear that I downloaded and install ....

Now what - cannot open the old Silverlight 1.1 projects. The VS gives the following error:
The imported project "C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v9.0\Silverlight\Microsoft.Silverlight.CSharp.targets" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct and that the file exists on the disk

The hint/solution is here: and it appears that we, as developers should not be afraid to edit the .csproj files - why should we ?

Just curious - if I am forced to uninstall any previous versions of Silverlight along with SDKs and VS tools (it is a prerequisite and the installation does not continue until you install them), why then the new Silverlight is put into new folder and there is no automatic backward compatibility.

Looking forward for the next release :)
