Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Beta was released this morning.  There are known incompatibilities between it and Silverlight Tools Beta 1. 

To install VS08 SP1 Beta you must uninstall Silverlight Tools Beta 1 and KB949325.

It looks like you also have to uninstall KB944899(Hotfix for VS2008 Team Developer Edition). My installation log indicated this after the SP1 install failed on my machine.
