1. This toolkit seems to be very Silverlight oriented. Can I build a pure WPF application without installing all of the Silverlight prerequisites? Or would I be better of with another framework?

2. Can I install this toolkit into, and use the VS2011 IDE? Does that environment change the prereqs at all? I really don't want to install the Silverlight prereqs into my VS2011 environment.

3. Works with .NET 4.5 version?

Thanks, Dave

I believe you can install the Simple MVVM Toolkit without the Silverlight prerequisites, then just use the WPF project template, item templates and code snippets.

Another option is to install the Simple MVVM Toolkit NuGet package for WPF. That will give you the WFP assembly for the toolkit but without the Visual Studio templates and code snippets.
