How To Install the XNA Add-On for XSI

A little detail: To get the pipeline stuff working for XSI-XNA production, you need to install the XSI add-on.

To install it, open XSI Mod Tool and go to File | Add-On | Install… and browse to the file ending in .xsiaddon that you just downloaded.

    You will want to make sure that you install the Add-On as a Factory Add-Ons not as a User Add-Ons. Otherwise the project will not be able to find the referenced DLL.

    After the installation of XSI Mod Tools completed, it "auto-updated" and I thought it automatically installed the XNA add-on.  Has anyone else noticed this behavior?  I also tried to install the "MOTOR" hotfix, but the hotfix installer told me I did not have any XSI products installed.  I assumed the auto-updater installed that hotfix.  I’m running 64-bit Vista.

    Make sure you install the XSI Add-on as a Factory Add-on and not as a User Add-on. XSI Mod Tool defaults to User Add-on when you open File|Add-On|Install, use the drop down in the lower left corner to change to Factory Add-on.

    I am not able to download the addon from the autodesk website. May be they have removed it. Can you provide me an alternate link.

    Followed the addin guidance with some issues.  For the total novice… Is there some documented task to confirm that the XNA addon is actually functioning?  Guidance sought

    I install xna add on xsi properly (using "add on as a factory") & xna game studio 4.0 & also visual c#2010  but there is no "xna connection" on the toolbar of softimage|xsi mod tool interface just like seen on video turial .

    Is there any thing else to be install
