Hey guys just joined..

So I'm learning C#, and kinda having trouble with finding the command prompt?

Installed Vistual Studio 2008 Express with C# and visual basic.
After that I installed XNA 3.1.

It's supposedly in a folder in the start menu under 'Microsoft Visual Studio Tools', but I have no such folder..

I tried using XNA Game Studdio 3.1 Command prompt but that gives an error.

Thank you for your help. :)..

And if you want to know what I am trying to do, I just want to manually compile a cs file.

It's there on mine, under the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 -> Visual Studio Tools

I don't even have that folder?

Could you tell me the shortcut(C# cmd) points to so I can manually try and locate it?

%comspec% /k ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat"" x86

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC has no files, only a folder in it?

Perhaps I should reinstall it?

Might be a difference between Express and Professional. You might not have it at all.

Yeah it seems like that :(?

Why would microsoft not supply it with express editions? ??

I got it!

I had to install Visual Studio C++ Express, now it's there!

Thanks to everyones help!
