XNA Game Studio is not designed for Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows. You need to use Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows Desktop.

Same issue on windows 8.1 when I had VS2013 express installed.
Problem resolved when I installed the extensions on VS2013 Ultimate.

I have the same problem. Sittygames said he resolved it by installing the extensions on VS2013 Ultimate.
I have no Ultimate version ( see log below ) and I want to use it in Visual Studio 2013 express.
How should I do that?

My log is above, at file attachments ( VSInstallerlog.txt )

The problem from me above was solved when I used the desktop version of Visual Studio 2013 which can be found by this link:
DESKTOP VERSION

Just pick the one called "Visual Studio Express 2013 with Update 4 for Windows Desktop"
