Not everyone is accepted into the Beta program.

You have to convince Microsoft that you would be a valuable asset to their beta program. They have to be reasonably sure that you already have the knowledge and ability to provide accurate and useful information about possible bugs in DirectX.

I hope I''ve missunderstood you but it seems to me like you want me to write an email for you that convinces the Microsoft DirectX team to let you participate in their Beta program.

First of all, that''s unethical. Second of all, if the DirectX team does not think you should be a part of the Beta, who am I to tell them different?

If you really think that you legitimately qualify to be a part of the DirectX Beta program, then contact Microsoft again and explain to them why you think you should be included.

dx9beta@microsoft.com or directx@microsoft.com - they''re both public addresses you can pick up from their website

I''m on the beta program for said software, and it could well be that they don''t NEED you (not that they dont WANT you). There are a lot of testers (many of them from the original DX9.0 beta) already, and if it keeps the "summer 2004" title then it''s probably a bit late to join

keep your eye on the news, as DX9 still has a decent lifetime so you may find they do a "summer 2005" beta you can join.

Applying to be a beta tester doesn''t grant you access until they have accepted you. You will simply have to wait. Since they accept beta testers from all walks of life (not only developers) You should be prepared that they might already have all people they need.
