Quote:A little over a month ago, I was away from home without the xbox and still wanted to get some development done. To solve this problem, I decided to port parts of XBMC to the PC.

Wow, very nice idea. That was the only thing why i stopped workin on XBMC-Plug-ins!! Skinning is a hard job!
Quote: You do not require the XDK. The executable that it produces may be distributed freely - it contains no XDK code whatsoever.
Did somebody compiled that exe already?

I want to use this to build themes and skins for xbmc.
when I use a full build and replace the xbe with the exe and run the .bat file as per the coding above, all I get when i launch the exe is a black, frozen app.
I made sure I downloaded the latest version of directx, but I think I'm missing something.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

mbay after you run the bat you should then have drives for q: p: t: and z: in windows explorer if they are not there then thats a good start for the problem
