Installing Windows Phone Developer Tools on Windows Server 2008


While trying to install Windows Phone Developer Tools on my machine which has Windows Server 2008 i faced lot of issues.

Finally i followed the steps mentioned in the following post to get it installed successfully.

I tried the same thing on “Windows Phone SDK 7.1” but couldn’t get it working properly.

And moreover  it only worked on a system that had no other version of Visual Studio installed in it.

Hope it helps.
