Directx 10 problem.

Guest

I have a problem running any game using Directx 10, it gives me this error
code, "The procedure entry point D3D10_CreateEffect could not be located in
the dynamic link library d3d10.dll".

I have a Nvidia 8600GT so it should be able to run it.

O/S: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Version 6.0 (Build 6000)

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

The board should be able to handle directx10, you mention trying it on "any
game" so it sounds like its not a specific one. It could be the driver -
what version of display driver are you running?

Also, you might try re-installing directx10. Go to www.microsoft.com/directx

Hope that helps!

I have version 163.44 for Vista.

I reinstalled Directx with no luck and I noticed something after I clicked
"Download the latest DirectX".

It said "DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer
Brief Description
August 2007
The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime provides updates to 9.0c and
previous versions of DirectX — the core Windows® technology that drives
high-speed multimedia and games on the PC."

Does this mean it doesn't update DirectX 10?

That is correct, Windows Update built into Vista will update DirectX 10 if
you need it. Since DirectX 10 is Vista only you can't just download it,
gotta be running Vista and using Windows Update in Vista to obtain DirectX
10 updates (which I don't think there have been any updates as of yet).

Vista by default does not have a lot of DirectX 9.0c files, some games need
these files, so you have to download the DirectX 9 from the website and
update Vista, though why Windows Update doesn't also update DirectX 9 is
beyond me, but that's Microsoft for ya.

I also have a problem with Directx 10, or at least i think i do. I have a
nvidea 8800 gtx so that definitly should run it, and it runs, but in any game
i try to run with directx 10 my mouse dissapears. It comes back whenever i
set the graphics low enough so it switches back to using directx 9c, and it
starts to flicker on and off when i turn off some high level graphics like
anti-ailasing and antroscropic filtering and vsync. It it just an annoying
problem because after buying such a video card i would like to have all the
features of directx 10 with my mouse. If you know of anything i should do
please help.

What type of mouse and mouse-driver are you using? Is it one that came with
the mouse (like Intellipoint) or just the generic Windows driver? Did it
come witha specific system, like a gateway mouse? They frequently have
specialized drivers.

There is some confusing terminology being used in this thread. While some
games have the option to switch between DirectX10 and 9 during setup, I
don't think setting the graphics "low enough" so it switches back to
DirectX9 typically happens. Actually using DirectX10 calls so you see a
visible difference on the screen requires the proper video card and a
program that can use it.

Can you provide what card you are using, what game you are having trouble
with and what video driver version you are using?

Hope that helps!
