Troubleshooting Installation

Error loading pipeline assembly “C:\…\FlatRedBallXna4Template\Libraries\Xna4Pc\FlatRedBall.dll”.

If you are experiencing this or any other problem with assemblies loaded in the Content project:

  • Navigate to the Libraries folder where the .dlls that your project links are located
  • Right-click on the .dll that is causing problems
  • Select “Properties”
  • At the bottom of the properties window, look for a “Unblock” button. Click it.
  • Click OK to apply changes
  • Rebuild (not just build, but rebuild) your project.
