Writing your First Windows Phone 7 Application - Day 1 - Part 3

Description

This video demonstrates how to use Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone to add Silverlight controls to a new project. It also covers how to write C# code that executes and displays a simple message on the phone emulator's screen when a user clicks a button in your application. Later, Bob will answer the questions, "why did we do that?" and "how does this work?" in order to give you a deeper look into the significance of each step he took along the way.

    If you get an error about screen unlocking, you may have installed a real WP7 to sync on your dev machine.

    You'll have to register for a dev account on the App Hub; $99.  Then using the tools on your dev machine register your actual phone using the following link.

    Also try to point the Visual Studio debug/run project to the emulator using the tool located under the phone dev folder. "Application
    Deployment" tool located in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start
    Menu\Programs\Windows Phone Developer Tools

    um so I saw that Cage had the same error as I did when I tried to debug the application, [quote] As I run the application, im getting an error " Zune software is not installed". so i tried to install it, now its saying "zune software is not launched" I dont see the connection between the zune software and windows phone development software working together. [/quote] and Cage answered his own question later saying [quote] hahaha, i am such a dork...all i needed to do was click window simulator... [/quote] I don't see any "window simulator" button or program whatsoever, so what exactly do I do to fix this error?
