Hello all,

I'm running the latest Vista Ultimate (MSDN) version on my machine. For some reason I can't get GSE to install. At the end of the setup, Microsoft Visual C#  Express crashes and the setup is rolled back. Always when it states "Registering project templates".

Like the Visual C# Express site suggests, I've tried uninstalling the product, and re-install it as an Administrator user. But that doens't work either. Afterwards I receive the same behavior. I've also ran the GSE setup as an Administrator, but still no luck.

Thanks for all suggestions and help!

Okay, let me make clear that I know it isn't supported...

However, there are plenty of people I've seen blogging about XNA that use Vista as the operating system they develop on. I'm not trying to report a bug, or complain about it. I simply need some help from this community to get things up and running.

Thanks...

What you would need to do is install the Visual C# 2005 SP1 Beta (I believe you can enroll in the SP1 Beta program on the Connect website). If you install C# Express SP1 first, then XNA should install fine (I know a couple of people running it on Vista). However, the keyword is "not supported," yet...

Thanks,

Reading back the threads I have, I've probably missed the Beta SP1 :) I'll try it as soon as I get home!
