I had quite some trouble getting the samples to work. I thought you might want to hear about that, maybe to improve the experience in future versions, so here is what I ended up doing to make them work.
When I started any sample project, Primitives.exe for instance, nothing happened except the creation of a log.txt file along with an error message inside.
I checked out the source at revision 18526 and followed
How to build the source version of the ANX.Framework. I ran MakeAnxFramework.cmd without any parameters and everything was built successfully.
I then started "bin\samples\Release\Primitives.exe" and many other samples but nothing seemed to work:
Error: Couldn't create instance of creator 'ANX.SoundSystem.OpenAL.Creator'
cause OpenAL is not installed and the dll's couldn't be found in the output path, too!
Make sure the OpenAL32.dll and the wrap_oal.dll files are in the output folder.
You can find them in the lib folder of the ANX.Framework or download and run the installer from
I copied both files to the output directory and started Primitives.exe again. This time log.txt contains:
Error: couldn't create instance of creator 'ANX.SoundSystem.OpenAL.Creator'.
Exception: An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.
(Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007000B) at ANX.Framework.NonXNA.AddIn.CreateInstanceIfPossible()
I then started to delete various dll's by flipping a coin what could cause the problem. I ended up deleting these dll's until the samples finally worked:
With either of these dll's no window appeared and no error message was written in log.txt as well, except the "couldn't create instance of creator ANX.SoundSystem.OpenAL.Creator" one.
