Windows NT has DirectX built into it, right? Which version of DirectX is in there? And do Windows 2000/ME have DirectX built in as well? -Ironblayde  Aeon Software The following sentence is true.
The preceding sentence is false.

I believe WinNT has dx 3.0. While Windows ME/2000 have dx 7.0? Not too sure, but the dx 3.0 on WinNT is why you never see many games on NT.

WinNT has Dx3 I think, at least when you install up to service pack 3 it does. Win2k has DX7 as does ME.

Win2K comes with DirectX7. That''s what I do my home development on. SP3 brought DirectX3 to NT4 I believe. There is a hack floating around that allows DirectX5 on NT4.
