Bottom line, you need to install Express to get the necessary libs.

Once you've installed GSE you can uninstall C# Express and use VS. You lose some of the benefits of using C# Express, but you can do it.

I've made a few games using Visual Studio 2005. I just created a regular C# Windows project. I deleted the Form1.cs and created my own class, and derived it from Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game class, and overrided a few methods (like the Draw and Update methods). And create a private GraphicsDeviceManager and ContentManager classes and blah blah blah.

Also, as I was tinkering around, I noticed the Content Pipeline doesn't work. Looks Iike I'll have to find another way to load assets in to the game :\

However, I'm still waiting for a version of XNA that'll be made for Visual Studio 2005, opposed to the Express Editions, to reap the full benefits of XNA :\ But I guess we'll have to make-do for now.

You need to use GSE and VS Express as that is the only system that we have at the moment, you can install them side by side with the other VS Products.

Also note that the pro version hs only been announced in name only, all details and any other dates have not been decided apon.

BTW Moving to the XN Framework Group.
