Hi guys,

if anybody has tried setting up the xdk on XP x64 Edition and found that the shell extensions aren't supported then this might be of interest.

This will give you a shortcut to 'Xbox Neighborhood' that works pretty much as it does on 32bit XP.

1. Install the shell extensions as you normally would.

2. Create a new shortcut on your desktop.

3. For the target location enter
CODE
%windir%\syswow64\explorer.exe ::{DB15FEDD-96B8-4DA9-97E0-7E5CCA05CC44}, /separate


4. Give it the name 'Xbox Neighborhood'

5. To setup the correct icon, hit the change icon button and point it at
CODE
%windir%\syswow64\xbshlext.dll


6. Select the icon which has the word 'xbox' readable on it.

7. Click OK and all is done.

Seems to work ok for me so far!

The Xbox Shell extensions are part of the official Xbox Software Development Kit (XDK). Hence it is not on Xbins and no one here can help you on where to get it.

Not to resurrect a dead thread, but this is somewhat important I felt tongue.gif

To get the 360 SDK software to work, follow the same instructions but with two small changes. Blatant copy/past as follows (thanks Carch for your instructions, it helped me get this going biggrin.gif):

1. Install the shell extensions as you normally would.

2. Create a new shortcut on your desktop.

3. For the target location enter
CODE
%windir%\syswow64\explorer.exe ::{57B2D0D9-32DD-476a-B663-C85D2EA24AA5}, /separate

4. Give it the name 'Xbox Neighborhood'

5. To setup the correct icon, hit the change icon button and point it at
CODE
%windir%\syswow64\xeshlext.dll

6. Select the icon which has the word 'xbox' readable on it.

7. Click OK and all is done.

I'm gonna go ahead and bump this one. I seem to have the same incompatibility issues on windows7. Has anyone else who has come across this find a solution?
