I'm looking for something called D3DSpy? I just downloaded the June 2005 SDK, and all I can find is a thumbnail image called D3DSpy.jpg. It's as if someone has mysteriously deleted it from the SDK, but didn't clean up all the other little bits. Well, I don't want to spend another 16 hours downloading 200 MB again on dialup. Please, where can I get this utility by itself? Thanks

It should be in your:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX 9.0 SDK (Summer 2004)\Utilities

or your equivelent, was for me and this is an older SDK. Also i don't recall seeing any reference to it anywhere else so it is likely hidden in the directory somewhere. If it isnt in yours add me to MSN (if you have it) and i will send it accross to you.

I'm pretty sure it's been renamed/turned into/replaced by "PIX for Windows".

Should be in Start->Programs->DX (June update)->Utilities->Pix for Windows.

You're right. It looks like PIXWin.exe has tracing abilities. I thought it was some
program for capturing bitmaps by the name of it. Thanks.

D3DSpy was semi-useful in it's day, but now it has been fully eclipsed by Pix. If you haven't used it yet, it can do some really incredible things for you (like incredible graphics profiling and capturing streams for playback later).
