Can't play on Windows 8
I've copied what is in the event log below. I've tried repairing the XNA installation, and uninstalling and reinstalling XNA using the isntaller in the redist folder.

It looks like you're missing some XNA dependencies. Are you sure you installed the XNA redist?

This error seems to come up if you install XNA Game Studio under windows 8, but the redist should work.

From this forrum it looks like it's an issue with having Windows Phone 8 SDK installed: http://xboxforums.create.msdn.com/forums/t/108773.aspx

That's a bummer because I have to have that SDK installed at the moment.

According to one of the posts in there you can install the Redist then the SDK and it should work.
