I cant make them work on a PC with just .NET 2.0 DirectX and the XNA Framework, it still needs the GSE and VC# Express, otherwise I get an error that the framework dll should have been installed into the Global Assembly Cache.

First, there is no need for double posting.

Are you sure you have the LATEST DirectX installed (the december 2006 version).

Maybe you installed the XNA Framework Runtime for the Beta2 accidentally, or maybe the games you are trying to run are made in Beta2 or Beta1

My apologies for double posting, I had that "alert me" button checked and led me to an annoying subscription page, I didnt realize it had posted once.

Ok so I DID have a weird Beta version(when I downloaded it, it said 1.0) but anyway, I've reinstalled GSE and checked if everything was up-to-date, recompiled using the new dlls from the last GSE Build, published, sent over to my laptop, double-checked all requirements there, but I still get the same error.

I`m puzzled now, and the only thing I can think of is that maybe it's an OS thing. I'm using different versions : XP Professional(English) and XP Home(Portuguese-BR).

Make sure (i.e. run the app) you have all of DX9.0c including the optional components by running the web installer. The SDK does not install everything (I think its jsut the latest versions and XNA relies on the October components) and the OS does not come with ANY optional components.

I've lost count of the nubmer of people on the forums who assure us they have DirectX 9 but this installer will fix it for them

If this doesn't fix it then run filemon http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/filemon.mspx to discover exatly which file its failing to find and complain about.

if you have .Net 2.0, XNA runtime (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx FamilyId=2E136A1F-F187-478C-9DA5-AAEB0904782B) and the DirectX runtime then your app should run fine on all international versions of the OS

I got the installer from your link and it didnt fix for me. I ran the filemon you linked and got some data but I still have to read through it, I`m not sure what I`m supposed to be looking for.

you have to install the .net framework 2.0 first. after that you should install directx 9.0c. if you installed directx befor the .net framework 2.0 there won't be any dx-assemblies. in that case you have to run the setup.exe from the directx setup with the command

setup /InstallManagedDX or something like that.

check if the mdx assemblies are installed in the gac. if everything is ok you continue with installing the xna framework redist.





Re: XNA Framework XNA Games OUT OF THE BOX??

The ZMan

Martin is correct that if you do not have .Net (1.1 or 2.0 will do) installed then the MDX assemblies will not install.

However its incorrect to say that calling setup with the /InstallManagedDirectX flag will install them after you have got .Net on the system - this flag hasn't been included in the DX setup for probably close to 2 years now, though its being kept alive largely by rumour. Just rerun the web installer - it will see that the managed assemblies are missing and put them in the right place.






Re: XNA Framework XNA Games OUT OF THE BOX??

Rafael Mores

Hm since you mentioned the MDX assemblies, could it be that I have the december SDK installed on my laptop

BTW, Ive tried removing GSE from my Desktop and the framework is OK, running my apps.

Im going to Uninstall 1.1 and 2.0 .NETs, the SDK, the runtime, the XNA framework, and reinstall them on that order, except the febuary SDK which I will install later if this works.

*cross my fingers*

Anyway, how can I uninstall Directx Its not on my Add/Remove Programs List.



Re: XNA Framework XNA Games OUT OF THE BOX??

Rafael Mores

Just all of that and nothing. The Directx runtime installer says I already have a newer or equal version and wont install any files.



Re: XNA Framework XNA Games OUT OF THE BOX??

The ZMan

You can't - the directx runtime does not have an uninstall option (though the SDKs do)

Then its likely that yu have everything you need.

Can you post the exact error you are seeing when you run your application.
