Hi everybody. I have a question of the utmost importance. I''ve installed the DX8 SDK on my other computer (it works fine on the one I primarily use) and I tried to run the D3D8 examples, but none of them actually work. They compile fine and everything, and then they execute. I get the black screen that means the initialization of D3D, and then nothing... If I take out all the D3D stuff, then the blank window pops up fine, but when the D3D stuff is present, all that happens is, well, nothing. Why won''t D3D8 initialize? help, please! Thanks in advance

Did you try downloading the latest video drivers for your card?

I have an old 4 meg STB Velocity 128 2D card, and A 3D Monster II (Voodoo II) 3D card. I did try driver updates, but thanks for the suggestion. Let me know if you think of anything else
