Hello, Farseer Physics Community!

I have a n00by question. I downloaded the last version of Farseer Physics, but I can't find any reference to use it.

Any help would be appreciated, and thanks in advance! I'm sure I'm just making a stupid mistake.

If you download the samples, you can see one way of using FP.
You can also see the online version of the manual right here

I'm sorry, but I don't know what you mean. Also, I've been getting issues with running the samples. 

Thanks for replying, genbox!


*edit*  Whenever I try to run a project, it says the .dll file is missing.

Did you download the Silverlight or XNA samples?
You need to have Visual Studio 2008 and XNA 3.0 or Silverlight 2.0 installed to run the samples.

I downloaded the XNA version, and I have Visual C# 2008 installed with XNA 3.0. I tried to use the latest Farseer build. Am I missing the .dll, or something?

When it tells you that a .dll file is missing, it's because the project reference is not set right.
It should be set right when you download the project (samples). You can fix it by rightclicking on the samples project, select Add Reference, select the Projects tab and add the Farseer Physics project.
