    After reading an article to XNA (and XNA Express) I'm wondering when we are getting a version that runs on Vista. Is it also possible to install XNA Studio Express with a Visual Studio Pro (or Team Suite) installed?

    Thanks for your answers and insides Smiley

    XNA Express is a seperate product, based on C# Express. So it will run side by side.

    Now we just need VB support Mad

    I have heard that the current (beta) version has only a few samples and isn't well documented. Is that right? Have you tried it on Vista?

    It just doesn't currently work on Vista, even Vista RC2. I'm guessing the various product teams inside Microsoft have only recently been enjoying having a finalized Vista API set and now the can actually start ensuring their various products work correctly.

    If it where a choice between getting XNA running under Vista or liberating the latest Orcas release from its Virtual PC - XP prison then I'd choose the later. Kind of hard to debug native Vista APIs with Orcas at the moment...

    Since MSDEVENV is just a standard IDE with pluggable modules, you can probably hack a way to get XNA working with Professional.
