Default NXA Question


I'm currently using VB Express 2010. Not VB C# but
the one using the VB language.

Is it possible for my VB to use NXA?

I downloaded the NXA Game Studio installer but it
won't install because i didn't install VB C# or WB
Phone.

The instructions for XNA Game Studio say to install 'Microsoft Visual Studio 2010' first. I'm guessing it would not install because you are only using VB Express. Did you get an error message during the XNA install that suggests otherwise?

Actually, i'm not getting any errors now. I had to do a crap load of downloading
and installing of just about everything, yesterday. Starting with a crap load of
windows updates, twice and then all the other stuff they wanted me to download.

It must have took me around 3 hours to do all of that and then i tried to reference
nxa in vb and i kept getting some complaining about not having a license for something.

Since shutting down my pc for the night and starting it back up, this morning, i don't
get the complaints any more.

I'm not sure if everything from nxa installed though. I was following a tutorial on how
to use nxa in vb and i was suppose to add a reference for microsoft.nxa.framework, _
content.pipe but i don't have that in my reference list.

I think i'm using version 3.5.

It's no big deal though. I'll figure it out.

XNA still wasn't working on my computer but at least
i know why now.

The newest version of xna will only work with the bought
and paid for version of VB 2010 C# pro and up. If i'm not
mistaken, i think it works with VB 2010 (VB
Language) pro and up too.

Their is an xna express version but it only works with the
2008 version of VB C# Express.

I'd have to downgrade to work with that version.

You mention VB C# a number of times.
C# is its own language and is installed independent of VB.net
C# people would probably not like the term VB C#.
I don't know if VB people care.

I don't understand it either passel but it seams that
everywhere that i look for information about VB net,
VB C# is brought up to.

I always have trouble defining what language that
i want to speak about because of this.

In the future though, i'll just call it what it really is,
C#....

Edit

After going to the MS web site, i see why i made the mistake.

C# is called Visual C#, just like all their other products have
a "Visual" before the product name. I must have been reading
Visual Basic into everything. My mistake. Sorry.......

You can beat me with horse feathers, if you like.....
