In this Microsoft article it states that sharing of resources between different d3d devices is possible on Windows Vista. The description sounds straight forward, so I gave it a try on Windows 7, but only get an D3DERR_INVALIDCALL back, when I call CreateTexture()

 

pSharedHandle points to a HANDLE that is 0.

 

D3D debug dumps the following:

 

Direct3D9: (ERROR) :Device is not capable of sharing resource. CreateTexture fails.
Direct3D9: (ERROR) :Failure trying to create a texture

 

I am using an ordinary Direct3D 9 device, not Direct3D 9Ex. But according to the docs it should work with both. I am using a Radeon 57xx, and the drivers are pretty recent. According to the docs, WDDM drivers are a requirement. Since mine are a couple of months old, I believe they should be (this is the year 2013...).

 

Obviously one question comes to mind: is this a Vista only feature?? Maybe they kicked it out with Win7 again?

 

So my question is, does anyone successfully use the pSharedHandle parameter?
