    I get error 2503 and 2502 when trying to uninstall or repair XNA Framework

    I am trying to use Microsoft XNA Framework for a game on my laptop.When I press Uninstall or Repair the bar goes about 1/2 way then says error code 2503,I click X in the top right then the bar goes 3/4 and says error 2503 again I click X again and it says the installer ended prematurely because of an error (code 2503) which could indicate a problem with the package.

    It could be a permission issue on the installed files. I would try some of the suggestions here as they may help you troubleshoot:

    The only installation issues I know of for XNA is this one https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2014/11/06/how-to-work-around-a-possible-xna-game-studio-setup-failure-on-windows-10-technical-preview/

    But honestly these days the installer is so old that I am not surprised. Its best to keep your XNA install on a windows 7 VM IMO.

    XNA has not been supported for a long time - you should take a look at http://monogame.net instead
