Hi all,

Having some issues building the default "My Space War" project in XNA. It builds fine but dies and gives me an error prompting me to send the information back to MS.

Any ideas about why this might be

Thanks!

If you post the entire error msg, including the string of numbers, somebody might be able to tell you.

It could be that your graphics hardware can't support the shader levels necessary to run XNA, and in particular the shaders required by Spacewar. XNA requires at least Pixel shader 1.1 support, and Spacewar requires Pixel Shader 1.1 and Vertex Shader 1.1 support minimum.

Also make sure your system is up to date from Windows Update and that you have the latest video drivers.

If the project was created as an XBox 360 project, and then you change the target to Windows, you will get a runtime error.

Could you please clarify what is crashing Is it Visual C# Express, or the Spacewar game that you built It seems to me like you mean C# Express, since otherwise you would be able to debug the exception instead of getting the Error Reporting dialog.

Can you also specify what platform you are using (Windows XP or Vista) and whether you have the Visual Studio SP1 for Express Editions installed

Thanks,
