Hi,

I recently tested my DX11 app through PIX at work where I have a win7 workstation. Everything seemed to work. Now, when I try to do the same on my win8 workstation at home I get an error. Basically I cannot seem to get the back buffer from the swap chain on device creation. The code is:

HR(mSwapChain->ResizeBuffers(1, mRenderWindow->getClientAreaWidth(), mRenderWindow->getClientAreaHeight(), BACKBUFFERFORMAT, 0));
ID3D11Texture2D* backBuffer;
HR(mSwapChain->GetBuffer(0, __uuidof(ID3D11Texture2D), reinterpret_cast<void**>(&backBuffer)));
HR(mD3DDevice->CreateRenderTargetView(backBuffer, 0, &mRenderTargetView));
ReleaseCOM(backBuffer);

The app crashes on the call to CreateRenderTargetView. The output is:

First-chance exception at 0x75C83858 (kernel32.dll) in Tankaroo.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000500.
D3D11 CORRUPTION: ID3D11Device::CreateRenderTargetView: First parameter is corrupt! [ MISCELLANEOUS CORRUPTION #13: CORRUPTED_PARAMETER1]
First-chance exception at 0x75134B32 (KernelBase.dll) in Tankaroo.exe: 0x0000087D (parameters: 0x00000000, 0x008AD108, 0x008AC540).

Everything seems to work well when not running through PIX. Any idea why this might be? The app is built using the VS2010 toolkit and the DX 2010 June SDK. I am not sure if this is because of win8, but that is my suspicion right now...

Yes, this is an known issue when using PIX from the June 2010 SDK under Windows 8.
You'll have to either use the new graphics debugger, switch back to Windows 7 or use an alternative (e.g. Nsight).

Damn, that's unfortunate. Thanks for the info.
