Anyone know an easier way to simply retrieve the name of the adapter than the way they are doing it in the sdk examples? i would think it would come back in d3dcaps9 but it doesnt. i want to avoid including that microsoft library that gets the adapter name if i can (DXUT.h, DXUT.cpp)

I don't know how they're getting the name in the SDK examples, but this seems pretty easy:

D3DADAPTER_IDENTIFIER9 id;
pDirect3D->GetAdapterIdentifier(0,0,&id);
// the id.DeviceName member should have the name


Once again.. this forum really should have a "someone posted while you were typing" indicator.
