During my Channel 9 interview at the Visual Studio launch I promised that I would follow up on a question for using XNA with Visual Studio 2010.  If you are using Visual Studio 2010 Professional (or higher) and have installed the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP you will get XNA Game Studio 4.0 in Visual Studio.

XNA

Talk to you soon,

Today was a fun day in Las Vegas.  It started off with the Keynote this morning where Microsoft’s Server & Tools Business President Bob Muglia announced the release of Visual Studio 2010.  Sam Gazitt, Doug Seven and I gave demonstrations of the product.  They all did a great job.  After that there was booth duty where I had a great opportunity to talk with customers and learn more about how they use Visual Studio.

In between booth duty I also spent some time on Channel 9 with Jonathan Carter.  I’m currently waiting to receive the list of questions that I said I would follow up on.  My guess is that I will receive them tomorrow and should have an answer by Wednesday.  Feel free to come back and check.

Today Charlie Kindel posted a blog post on compatibility issues with Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP and Visual Studio RTM.  This issue will be addressed in the coming weeks but you can find more information at the blog post.
