In Topic: SharpDX PrintControl creation problem

14 November 2013 - 11:06 AM

My previous nVidia driver was telling me "taking charge of DirectX 11.1".


After installing latest driver from nVidia, it is no longer misleading... it simply tells DirectX 11.


Furthermore, if I only request feature level 11.1 in my code snippet, the app would crash at device creation tellin me it is not supported.


Thanks all, problem is the video card.

Did it crash with an error message? 


I've never used a PrintControl, but it sounds like something that would depend on DX 11.1, so you would have to have the right assemblies and also the platform update that allows Windows 7 to use DX 11.1.

Thanks for the answer.


It does crash with a SharpDXException at SharpDX.Direct2D1.Device.CreatePrintControl.


I am running Win7 sp1 with the platform update, Windows SDK for Windows 7, vs2012 update 4, and my graphics card is a Quadro 1000M with a driver that does handle dx 11.1.  


Still dxdiag keeps telling me that my runtime is dx 11.0. I'm about to go back to GDI+ so I can do my project before Christmas...
