okay i've got my dx10 renderer up and running, but the colour i use in the pix method:

does not affect any colours in pix ! all i get is a grey bar which is really anoying as i cannot easily see what is chewing up my render time.

Any one had such a problem i think it *could* possibly be that pix are from dx9, i had to link with dx9 librarys to get the pix functions to link.
