I am trying to run the XPA demo appp and I get the following error as the app tries to load the ode.dll

Unable to load DLL 'ode.dll': The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800736B1).

Any ideas how I might work around this?

did you looked at the application event log for more detail? :)
there could be 3 problems AFAIK
1. ODE isn't capable for vista
2. you own x64 vista
3. program may need administrator permissions to run

I think I have the same problem using XPA and vista:

"A first chance exception of type 'System.DllNotFoundException' occurred in XnaDevRu.Physics.Ode.dll"

what could it be? I've set up the references properly... do I need to copy them to my projects folder? no... right?

also, I only need the using statements XnaDevRu.Physics.Ode and XnaDevRu.Physics, is this right?

I spent most of this afternoon getting the ode.dll to work on vista and I thought it might be useful to someone.
It looks like the ode.dll was built in debug mode (Assembly Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT, version="8.0.50608.0")
I already had Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition installed and installing the runtimes didn't help.
It runs after installing Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition.
