Hi,

Is the XNA framework runtime going to be in a future Windows Update

Just wondering as if I managed to write a game for Windows that I wanted to share with a 'non XNA GSE' person would I always have to get my users to install the runtime themselves (or could I ship the runtime if that's allowed) etc.

Cheers :)

I don't even see the latest directx being pushed out on Windows updates. I am guessing this won't happen in the near future. Probably like DirectX, you are going to see it as part of your new graphics cards/games installation. New versions of Windows will probably bundle it too. I am guessing that you will run out of friends' PC to upgrade before you see it in Windows updates...

According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/directx/xna/gse/ , you can distribute the XNA Framework 1.0 with your XGSE games

Developers may include this runtime redistributable when they share their games written using XNA Game Studio Express 1.0.
