According to the dx9 decs, win 98 gold is shipped with DX version 5.2. Does anyone know what version of DX older versions of windows (down to win95) are shipped with. I think it is version 5.0, but i just wanted to clarify Thank you Spree

Hmm... I seem to remember having DX 3 running on win95

Best bet: dig up the DX 5 (or later) redistributables

AFAIK:

Windows NT - DirectX 2 or 3 (maximum)

Windows 95 original and SP1 - no DirectX installed

Windows 95 SR2 - DirectX 2 or 3

Windows 98 - DirectX 5

Windows 98SE - DirectX 6

Windows ME - DirectX 7

Windows 2000 - DirectX 7

Windows XP - DirectX 8


1) If this matters to your app, do remember to check the version properly (see the GetDXVer sample in the DirectX SDK) rather than just relying on the OS version.

2) Anyone who''s played a game on an older version of Windows will VERY likely have a newer version of DirectX installed.

Thanks for that. Its not too important as to which version is installed on the client machine, as I am only using it for input, and its more than easy to use the window procedure and various bits and bats to do it instead.

Thanks
