XNA 4.0 Installation problem

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow developers, I'm having strabge problem with Xna 4.0.

I have downloaded it from [url="http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23714"]http://www.microsoft...s.aspx?id=23714[/url] . I have Visual Studio 2010 express edition installed and service pack 1 for it. i'm running WIndows 7 (64-bit).

The problem I'm having is, then I press setup file, it only extract redist.msi etc. and does nothing else. I cannot find there this is extracted and there is still no XNA installed.

Maybe your installer is missing or corrupted or your file associations are bad.

a) in a command prompt type assoc .msi

mine says .msi=MSi.Package

what's your response ?

if it's not correct type :

assoc .msi=Msi.Package Edited by Gavin Williams

ok,
* make sure windows is updated fully, you can manually check for updates if necessary, go to start, type in 'update' and select windows update.
* re-download the xna installer, and try again.
* also you could repair windows with your windows disk (this should fix any windows installer issue)
* or alternatively determine how to reinstall or repair the installer.

I'm just running through some possible fixes. I haven't seen the problem you're having, and it's not a problem particular to xna.

edit : i found the following procedure to repair the installer, i tried it just to make sure it does what it says it does, and it looks like its ok : (you'll have to run your command prompt as administrator.

sc config msiserver start= demand
Net stop msiserver
MSIExec /unregister
MSIExec /regserver
regsvr32.exe /s %windir%\system32\msi.dll
Net start msiserver Edited by Gavin Williams
