[# WP] HowTo: Install Microsoft.Xna.Framework reference for Windows Phone development in # Windows8

Now that we have the Windows Phone SDK 7.1.1 Update that already allows us to install WP on Windows 8 development tools, because I thought that it was all fixed. But… zas! the first on the face, to the point of wanting to compile the project, because I realize that I’m lacking in XNA.


So ignorant of me, I think that installing Microsoft XNA Game Studio 4.0 it would solve my problems, but of course

trying to install XNA in Windows 8 is just as easy to scratch the back with knee

  • Actually it can not, because the XNA Installer tries to install a version of Game for Windows Client and Windows 8 says NOT IN MY WATCH!

So slowly and lovingly, the steps to get everything to work are as follows:

That Yes, the interesting evening of Logs that I noticed today the does me anyone Risa
