I think you have mistakenly added prerequisites of MCPD Windows Developer to MCPD Web Developer and vice varsa.

This should be like this :

MCPD: Windows Developer:
Prerequisite: 1, 3, 4 from above MCTS section
Exam 70-518: PRO: Designing and Developing Windows Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 4


MCPD: Web Developer
Prerequisite: 2,3,4 from above MCTS section
Exam 70-519: PRO: Designing and Developing Web Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 4
