I think something''s wrong with my video card or driver or something cuz every time i call DrawPrimitive I get an exception. I checked it with some sample code off flipcode.com and it didn''t work either. Anyone have any ideas? I''m not exceeding MAXNUMPRIMITIVES either. BTW, don''t you just love this site?

Do the SDK samples (pre-built) run? If you re-compile them, do they still run? Do you have the debug runtime installed? If so, is there anything in the debg spew to hint at why? If not, go do it.

go to the start menu, select Run... and enter DXDIAG

when it starts run all the tests and check all of that tabs for reported problems. That will diagnose the integrity of all the DirectX components in your system.

Other things to do are:

- upgrade your motherboard drivers
- upgrade your graphics card drivers
- install any released service packs for your OS
