Visual Studio Unsupported Features

Visual Studio Unsupported Features

Describes the features of Visual Studio that are not supported for XNA Game Studio.

The following Microsoft Visual Studio items are not supported for XNA Game Studio projects:

  • Creating or running Visual Studio Team System 2008 Test Edition unit tests for an Xbox 360 or Zune Game project. For this reason, the Create Unit Tests… command is hidden in the Code Editor context menu.
  • Adding Windows Form, User Control, or Component classes to an Xbox 360 or Zune Game project. For this reason, these options are not available from the Project context menu.
  • Adding service references to an XNA Game Studio project. For this reason, the Add Service Reference command is not available from the References context menu or the Project context menu.
  • Adding Web references to an XNA Game Studio project. For this reason, the Add Web Reference command is not available from the References context menu or the Project context menu.
  • Adding data sources. Data sources are not supported on the Xbox 360 or Zune platforms. For this reason, the Data menu is hidden when an Xbox 360 or Zune Game project is active.
  • Publishing the project using the Visual Studio Publish command. This command is available from the Build menu for Windows projects only, as described in the topic Distributing Your Finished Windows Game. This command is not available for projects on the Xbox 360 or Zune platforms. You should use the Deploy command instead. For more information on deployment, see Deploying an Xbox 360 Game or Deploying a Zune Game.
