    Where to download Xbox Dev Kits? Some links seem to be broken


    Hello,

    I was assigned a partner account from my working company to develop and test on Xbox XDK device, but with the account I can't visit some of the Xbox official websites, besides some of them are empty.

    For example, I can't visit the page: https://aka.ms/DevKitSetup

    I ask for help from my administrator, she can visit the above page, but the download page seems empty: https://aka.ms/xgddl

    which redirects to: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/devcenter

    And the GDK download page displays just one line of statement but nothing else: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/gdk

    which says: "Privacy: Your use of the media creation tools on this site is governed by the Microsoft Terms of Use for this website."

    Could you please provide some guidance, and where to download the necessary software for Xbox development? Thank you!

    :)

    Hi, my name is Fernando and I am an independent consultant for Microsoft products.

    Check this documentation:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/pu...

    There is a known issue where users in some locales might be unable to finish completing their registration.

    You can change your browser's locale tag to en-us once you begin the sign-up process on partner.microsoft.com.



    - Created a new Microsoft account *** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. ***

    - Enrolled in "Windows & Xbox" program using Microsoft account (*** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. ***)

    - Associated Partner Center account with our Azure AD

    - Added existing Azure AD User (*** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. ***) to the Company Developer Account

    - Assigned this user (*** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. ***) to have Role = Developer

    Cross check if the role assigment was actually done right

    The person who created the account needs to Login into PC, switch to the right seller account using the account picker on the left nav

    Navigate to Account Settings -> User Management -> search for the user and go to their details and verify if the user ideed has a developer role

    you could try visiting here. If you do not have access to the site, you will not be able to download or use the xbox dev kit

    Hi Fernando,

    Thank you for replying. I ask my administrator to read your answer together, and we have made sure that my account is at this stage:


    [​IMG]
    As you could see, my admin "Hao", she has assigned me "" as a developer,

    but at the current stage, I still can't visit the Xbox Dev home page, (whereas my admin can)

    Besides, neither of us can visit any pages below
    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/games/xbox/docs/gdk/

    as mentioned above, but many MS documents contain links to them, such as

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/gaming/gdk/_content/gc/getstarted/setting-up-your-devkit

    And I can't move further while reading the Xbox One Dev Spec, because all the download link in

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/games/xbox/partner/resources-softwaredownloads and

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/games/xbox/partner/development-downloads-xdk-archives

    points to an URL: https://aka.ms/xgddl

    which I can't open, my admin can open it but it doesn't show anything:

    I feel really sorry that the solution doesn't work. Are we still missing any steps for authorization?

    Eager for reply,

    Hi Jamie,

    Thank you for your reply, I just found an entrance of the documentation, and is now reading about installing XDK,

    I'll try it out in a moment and see if I still have problems with authorization.

    But I did find things going wrong:

    Any links below

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/games/xbox/docs/gdk/

    seems broken, I believe it's a missing archive because I can visit other pages below

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/games/xbox/docs/

    and just now, I saw a notice from the Xbox Dev Homepage saying the GDK documents are recently migrating, maybe this is the reason for my confusion.
