    It is near the top of the pace labeled "C# Download".

    near the top of this page is a link that says 'C# Download' which is a download of a .vsi file that installs a .zip file containing the source. Pay attention to where it installs the .zip file, to make sure you can find it and unzip it. On my PC it put it in a Visual Studio 2005 templates directory.

    You can download TinyTennis from the top of this page. Click "C# Download" under the "Download:" heading.

    I got this message error trying to install this started kit, any idea why this is going on?

    Installation stopped because the directory for the ProjectType value did not exist.  The project type is invalid for your installation of Visual Studio

    what can i do, Thanks.

    I downloaded unzipped and opened the tiny tennis solution using visual c# 2008 express edition.  This required a conversion. After compilation I got errors and warnings, which I've pasted in at the bottom of this. I hope I'm not just being a greenie, and I'm bringing up a relevant question but in either case, hopefully you will still have an answer.

    Thank you

    Following are the warnings and error messages:

    This is all very interesting, but I have about the stupidest question asked ever: How do you move your own bat thingy to block the ball???

    @Nick:  I Just downloaded it, unzipped the tinytennisstarterkit

    C:\Users\crutkas\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual C#\TinyTennisStarterKit

    Started a new project with it as the template and it compiled just fine.  I didn't even have to convert it.  To get it as a Template, I clicked on "Visual C#" in my project types in the "New Project" dialog.

    @Nick:  What are the errors?  The source is a tad old for this game judging by the date but I'll see what I can't do to help out.

    41 errors after conversion for VS2008.  Anyone figured out how to get this running under '08?

    About the errors.

    Is just erase the "$" caracters from the classes names.

    Then it should compile nicely.

    For those of you who are receiving this error posted earlier by Paul:

    "Installation stopped because the directory for the ProjectType value did not exist.  The project type is invalid for your installation of Visual Studio"

    It is because you have changed the default location of where Visual Express saves projects and templates.  To fix this go into tools>options>projectsandsolutions>general:

    from here reset the saving folders back to the default location which should be something like:

    C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects

    C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\ProjectTemplates

    C:\Documents and Settings\Aeklad\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Templates\ItemTemplates

    After I did this I was able to install all of the .vsi files no problem.
