Hi,

Just downloaded and installed the December 2006 DirectX SDK.

Using XP Pro SP2 and Devstudio2005 standard edition,

DXviewer keeps crashing so I opened up the source code and compiled it to see the error.

"The application has failed to start because d3dx10d.dll was not found"

I know that Directx10 requires Vista but how can I use the basic SDK tools under XP for directx9 learning

I am not a C++ expert but can I link it to DX9 instead.

Thanks

Stephane

something is wrong as a lot of people are having that issue. The version from the oct2006 sdk runs, but the project doesn't compile (at least for me), i'm currently going back in time to find a version that does compile and i'll let you know if it works.

I have a similar problem! Everytime I open DX Viewer visual studio debugger opens

The Error message is : An unhandled win32 exception occured in DXViewer.exe[3336]

Any other prograns that can be used as a .X file viewer
Thx

I got the similar problem in my Chinese version DX SDK of Dec 2006, and i replaced DXViewer.exe with the earlier version, then it works.

Stephane,

Just an FYI, the Feb 2007 version of DirectX SDK has been released and the DXViewer works fine now. Thanks.

The ZMan

The issue was the the December SDK DXViewer was linked to the DX10 libraries, so unless you had Vista and DX10 hardware it woulnd't run. As windozer pointed out this is fixed in February SDK.

I am having a somewhat related problem with the April 2007 Directx SDK. After installing the SDK and tried to run DxViewer on one of the sample files, I got a sequence of messages that no effect instance was specified, then DxViewer crashed in the kernel. I have been using .NET Framework 2.0 and Platform SDK for some time, quite successfully. What's up
