I want to explore how MVC apps work. I ran sp1 on vs2010 and then ran MVC4.
I downloaded MVC Music Store app but I couldn't open. It seems like it works only in MVC3.
Can anyone guide me how to make this work in MVC4?

MVC4 is in beta yet. Please use MVC3 -if you learn MVC3, you will learn easily MVC4( some mobile and web api things...)

Thanks ignatandrei. I installed MVC 3.0 and try to open MvcMusicStore. Still I got the error mentioned below. where am I going wrong?
C:\SampleProjectsLearningNewTechnology\MVCProjects\MvcMusicStore-v3.0\MvcMusicStore-Completed\MvcMusicStore\MvcMusicStore.csproj : error : The project file 'C:\SampleProjectsLearningNewTechnology\MVCProjects\MvcMusicStore-v3.0\MvcMusicStore-Completed\MvcMusicStore\MvcMusicStore.csproj'
cannot be opened.
The project type is not supported by this installation.

I just realized that when I run web platform installer, it installed only MVC 3 -visual studio 2010 tools ...not MVC3 runtime. I don't know why it happened like that.

I have a fork of the Music Store running with MVC 4 here: http://mvcmusicstore.codeplex.com/SourceControl/network/forks/OdeToCode/mobilemvcmusicstore
You can download the latest change set and give it a try - should be working with MVC 4 + VS2010.
I'll be adding mobile features to it using features from ASP.NET MVC 4.
