I''ve read long ago something about DX8 and WinXP incompatibility. Is it true? If so, is there any fix for it? -Toyemann

Windows XP comes with DX 8.1 pre-installed. You shouldn''t have a problem.



I know only that which I know, but I do not know what I know.

There are a few things you might want to do to make sure you play nicely with some of XPs features like user switching, etc.

This isn''t really a compatibility issue, just good coding practice (like handling ALT+TAB correctly).
