Yes, Silverlight app can be developed using Visual Studio Express.

You might have downloaded different package that is not supported in 32 bit machine. Look at your system configuration and download the appropriate package.

Thanks

It is always recommended to read the installation manual before getting started. please check the microsoft website for detailed information. http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/products/2010-editions/visual-basic-express Read the system requirement here.

Well for silverlight development Visual Studio is not sufficient but at the beginning it's ok. For Silvelight advanced development you need to install Microsoft Expression Studio (that includes suite of softwares).

The installation is failing may be due to:
1. The SETUP is corrupted while downloading from the Microsoft website. Try downloading one more time and check the installation. If possible, try to install it from the DVD coming with so many magazines like CHIP, DIGIT.
2. Also verify the correct version is installed. Like on 32 bit machine one should install x86/32bit related installer. From the error you have mentioned, it seems the error is due to wrong(amd64/64bit) installer used on 32bit machine.

You can use express edition for the silverlight developement.
