I am looking at using the toolkit with Silverlight 5 but the template does not create the tests project

Can this be resolved and updated asap please?

I tried to use the Silverlight 4 template and upgrade the items to Sivlerlight 5 but got all sorts of problems!

Thanks for your query.  I ran into problems when upgrading the unit testing piece to SL5 and didn't have time to figure out what was going on.  However, I just now discovered the cause, which is some missing references in the unit test project.  I will take some time this next weekend to fix the unit testing project.  In the meantime, you can add a Silverlight Unit Testing Application directly to the solution, reference the SL app, the Simple Mvvm Toolkit, and all four of the references in the SL app that begin with System.ServiceModel.

Thanks for your patience.

ok thanks

I have also noticed that the template creates a lot of folders!

I specified that the project be saved in c:\source\trunk\SLFlexDashboard6

The silverlight is in


Are all these folders essential?

I would have thought its best to have the solution at the same level as the folders for Silverlight and the web project?
