Hello, I have problem with setting up my project.

here you can see my setting in solution explorer and error which I got.

I'm not sure how to add content pipeline reference - I opened project properties (on top - project/project properties - the last one from pop-up menu)
then I didn't see the content pipeline on the left. ( I use visual studio 2008, xna 3.1)
here was only - see next screen

So I added link just reference path to folder where are downloaded DLL ( Xclna.Xna.Animationx86 and Xclna.Xna.Animation.Content)

I'm not sure where I should add Xclna.Xna.Animationx86.xml and Xclna.Xna.Animation.Content.xml
If just add into project or add into content of project.

I will be glad for every advice.

Hi mariscal, I had the same problem. It seems the current version on codeplex is not compatible with 2008 and XNA 3.0.

I found someone had posted a fixed version on the discussion board:

However, the DLLs in that package don't work "as is". You'll need to take the source code from that package and rebuild it into a DLL. After that, it should work fine.

Hope this helps.
