    I can get to the download page from the link you provide, but all of the Related Resource links result in the Microsoft.com equivalent of a 404.

    It looks like a reference to XNA page on MSDN is simpler: http://msdn.microsoft.com/directx/XNA/

    Also try http://msdn.microsoft.com/directx/xna/gse/

    and http://msdn.microsoft.com/directx/XNA/gse/readme/

    and http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/showforum.aspx?forumid=882&siteid=1

    and http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualcsharp/

    These should all work more simply, and may even respond to non-English browser language preferences.

    Well that is what I get for cutting and pasting without testing. I think I’ll have to grade myself down for that one. Thanks for catching it. I’ve fixed all the links (at least they worked when I tested them this time) and I’ll be more careful in the future.
