NET development tools; what if you only have the runtime? I dragged a few existing Silverlight design assemblies from Dev Express into that folder and I got no error message (but didn't see the assemblies either). That leaves only the installer, which seems like way too much overkill to me.... Before installing Net Framework make sure that you have Windows Installer 3.1 - it's a requirement to be able to install Net Framework.
(I'm looking here for advice to give to people installing Saxon on . I've also read that you can simply drag files into c:/windows/assembly but it doesn't work for me: I get "access not allowed".3.5 and 2.0 use the same run-time, so I can imagine you can use the 2.0 tool for 3.5 assemblies as well.... When you get "access not allowed", are you running as a non-admin on Windows 7 or other UAC OS? If you don't have it you can get it from the following link.
yes, the 2.0 tool works with 3.5 - and I've been using it - but new users who install 3.5 without having 2.0 installed don't get the tool. The KB entry says "To run the viewer with elevated permissions, log on as a local administrator." But I am a local administrator; usually if I want to do something privileged, it asks for confirmation, but here it just denies access.
When installed, it adds the assembly as reference to your project and sets up Win SCP executable to be copied to project output directory, so that it can be found on run-time, as described above.
No other setup is needed, so you can start coding straight away after installation.

According to the following page the Explorer view on the Assembly does not run with elevated privileges even if you run Explorer with elevated privileges. 'recommended' way is via an installer, but as Imar says this sounds a bit like overkill. Falling foul of the crazy Vista permissions system again.
