It isn't Microsoft's fault that a user is trying to install an engine SDK on hardware that doesn't meet the minimum spec. XNA's engine is probably Direct11 based and no matter how non-fancy your game graphics will be, it still needs a minimum spec to show a blank window. Its the same if you tried to install UDK on your netbook. It has a minimum set of requirements for the engine.

Python with PyGame or Lua with Love are probably your next best bets.

Yeah, yeah. I just have a persecution complex against big corporations. I don't understand the state of technology (or even this little bit of software here), which makes it hard to complain; but I try.

Thanks. I'll look into these other suggestions with renewed hope.
