I've got an XNA Creators Club trial membership via DreamSpark, but I cannot download the XNA Game Studio Connect app due to a bug in the site. Users from Finland and US experienced this before and MS fixed something in the Marketplace configuration that enabled them to download this. You need this app to deploy apps to Xbox 360 during development.

Can someone with a Creators Club account please download this app for me and upload it someplace?

I'm legal since my account on App Hub shows Registered, Student, and Premium Member.

    \$\begingroup\$ That app needs to be downloaded on the Xbox itself, not the PC, right? So not sure how one would go around to do that "for you"... \$\endgroup\$ – Oskar Duveborn Nov 5 '10 at 17:27
  • \$\begingroup\$ Well I assumed they'd give you a installer file (on the PC, on the LIVE marketplace site) which you could just send over to me!! \$\endgroup\$ – Edwardian Nov 5 '10 at 20:38

I only see a button to download to my Xbox 360. When I clicked it, it said it was added to my "queue", and I guess it will magically show up on my Xbox? But there is nothing I saw to download...

Here is a screenshot of the page I see: (notice the "Download to Xbox 360" button in the bottom right)

Edit: I found the queue. And it is as I suspected. My Xbox hasn't recognized the download yet, but I think I already have the XNA Game Studio Connect app on my Xbox, so I'm not sure if it will ever (re-)download. Xbox Download Queue

According to the XNA team's blog today (Fri Nov 5) the connect application will be updated to accept XNA4.0 deployments. I'm guessing you are seeing transients related to the upgrade process.

If I were you I would try again later today, once the new connect app has been fielded in all markets.
