Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta 7.1 Installation behavior

Just got the Windows Phone 7.1 Developer Beta SDK installed today and it's great to see lot more APIs than the earlier version.

In fact, I got the Developer SDK installed on 3 different machines.

  1. A new Virtual Machine with Windows 7 Professional without  Visual Studio 2010 pre-installed.
  2. Machine with Visual Studio 2010 Professional SP1 installed.
  3. Machine with only Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate installed

The installation on the Machine 1 went on smooth and so did the installation on machine 2 with Visual Studio 2010 Professional SP1 installed, but was struck up with the following 'prerequisite missing' message on Machine 3 .

“Microsoft Windows Phone Developer Tools 7.1 (Beta) – ENU

Setup has detected that this computer does not meet the requirements to install this software . These requirements must be met before you can install Microsoft Windows Phone Developer Tools 7.1 (Beta) – ENU .

PreRequisite products

Setup has detected that Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 is not installed on the machine for following products . Please install and retry

* Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate .”

So guys , in case you have Visual Studio 2010 already installed on your machine , make sure you have the SP1 installed too before installing Windows Phone 7.1 Developer Beta SDK :)
