I just noticed that before anyone could start my program, they had to install mdxredist.msi. This is quite odd, because they all had win xp with newest dx 9.0b installed. Shouldn''t managed dx programs work without extra with dx 9.0b? Now the problem is that I don''t know what mdxredist.msi exactly is. I think it installs necessary dx dlls somewhere? I took the file straight from the dx 9.0 sdk and gave it to my friends, it was about 4.1mb. Is that file correct one, or is it somekind of debug/developer version? If so, where can I get the redistributable version? MSDN didn''t give any matches with "mdxredist".

mdxredist.msi is the installer for the managed DirectX libraries.

I thought it had changed, but i know the first versions would install only the native DirectX9 files IF the .Net framework wasn''t present. Makes sense really...

so if you''re testers have installed DX9 before installing the .Net framework then they''d need to reinstall parts after the .NEt framework/before running your program.

Use the retail DirectX 9b, and install with the commandline /InstallManagedDX. This can be done from your own installer to install the managed runtimes of DX.
