error:HRESULT:0x80070005, access denied.

08 December 2013 - 08:25 PM


i compiled and ran a sdl test program in vs 2013 express.  however, after i exported the template and tried to create a project with that template, i got an access denied exception.  

i had done this with directx and opengl without incident.

any suggestion will be appreciated.

resources for directx 11 2d, can you help me find one?

31 July 2013 - 07:33 PM

hi there!


i would like to learn to write some games with directx 11.  i prefer vc++ 2012.  


i am reading "programming 2d games" by Charles Kelly.  i find out that it is limiting (maybe that is because i still do not understand all of it.  i have not finished the book.  i got thru chapter 9).  i find that i have to render the image in between graphics->beginScene and graphics->endScene() to be limiting(the book used d3d9 rather than d3d11).


i missed SDL, where i can blit to the screen from everywhere and flip it when done rendering.  that is why i find programming 2d games is so limiting.  i got my program running with all the graphics file and rendering fine until i got to the last part of my program.  i find that directx is very fast, that  is why i want to stick with dx.


is there a book or web tutorial that you can recommend?   


any suggestion will be appreciated.



Directx 11 installation error s1023

16 June 2013 - 11:32 AM



i tried to install directx 11 on my windows 8 system.  at the end of the installation i get an error S1023.  


i googled S1023 and some site suggested that i uninstall vs c++ 2010 redistribution.  but i afraid that if i uninstalled it, i will not able to get it back and my other programs may need it to run correctly.


i also search gamedev, and a guy suggested that reboot the pc.  i did, but it still failed at the end with the same error.


is there a newer version of directx 11?  the version i got is june 2010, which is kind of old.


if i successfully installed directx 11, will it be able to run on vc++ 2012 windows desktop express?


any help is appreciated
