Any progress on this?

As described in my thread on Reddit. It's possible to come as far as to build and run XNA projects by modifying the installer and moving some files. But we've run into an error we haven't been able to solve for building content projects:

Any idea how to get past this?
Error loading pipeline assembly "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework.NETFramework\v4.0\Microsoft.Build.Framework.dll".

Thank you!

Wait, I can't see a download link to the new extension.... It was supposed to release 2 days ago. What's delaying it so much? Bugs?

DarkPrisma wrote Mar 22 at 1:22 PM

whats wrong ? :) please tell us if we can help...

PowerUser123 wrote Mar 22 at 2:13 PM

Yeah I'm forced to work with VS 2015, if there's anything we can do to speed up the release we'd be glad to help. If you can't finish development, let us download the unfinished project and maybe with the help of the folks on that Reddit thread we could find a fix.

There are some changes that Microsoft done in Visual Studio.
Some aliases now point to other directories that stop extension from working properly.

PowerUser123 wrote Mar 26 at 3:49 PM

Can you figure it out? I see you've uploaded an alpha, but it doesn't work...

I take it the current issue now is the following error on build?
"Your installation of XNA Game Studio does not support this project (XNA Platform = 'Windows', XNA Framework Version = 'v4.0')."

Any ideas as to the cause?

PowerUser123 wrote May 1 at 10:48 AM

Bump. Still waiting for the new installer.

mklemarczyk wrote May 1 at 2:28 PM

The project is over since codeplex will be closed and repo is locked in read-only status.

kainazzzo wrote May 1 at 3:51 PM

That is not true. First of all, the project need not be tied directly to codeplex's status. Furthermore, from the blog post detailing Codeplex's shutdown:

The shutdown plan
So, it’s time to say goodbye to CodePlex.  As of this post, we’ve disabled the ability to create new CodePlex projects.  In October, we’ll set CodePlex to read-only, before shutting it down completely on December 15th, 2017.

We still have several months before this project is read only.

PowerUser123 wrote May 2 at 2:11 PM

So you haven't done anything towards fixing the installer? During all of April?

DarkPrisma wrote May 8 at 11:57 AM

so, we can't expect any updates to that issue? very sad :(

VicViper wrote May 18 at 5:16 PM

mklemarczyk, could you confirm if you're still working on fixing the issue?

We're still waiting fo a fix, because right now, we have changed our dev environment with virtual machines, one with Vs2015 to use XNA and Vs2017 with new stuff... and it is extremely to work like that.

We were expecting this so we can get rid of the virtual machines and work only with VS2017.

I don't intend to add more pressure on you... I am aware there's extra difficulties with the new MSBuild and Microsoft was not very helpful on that...
