Hey everyone!

I got an issue with Visual Studio, Silverlight 5 Beta SDK and XNA.

I did a fresh install of all Visual Studio components I need to create the application I have in mind:
1 - Visual C# 2010 Express
2 - XNA Game Studio 4.0
3 - Visual Web Developer 2010 Express
4 - Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone
5 - Visual Studio 2010 SP1
6 - Silverlight 5 Beta Tools

However, when I start VS 2010 Express for Windows Phone and go to create a new project these are the templates I have:
<img src=""/>

But there are a few templates missing.
How can I make appear the following templates:
<img src=""/>

So what am I missing in this? I believe I installed everything and still nothing appears.
Is it because I'm using the express edition of visual studio? it doesn't make much sense though.

Thanks in advance.

I think I know what it is :P.

When you install Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition, it does not automatically install XNA Game Studio 4.0 Refresh and the Windows Phone SDK.

You can download and install these from[^]
