Is anyone developing DX9 (October 2005) apps on Win2K? Any ideas how I can get it to work? (clean build)

It refuses to install.

To clarify... I seem to remember that Win2k was no longer a supported development platform in the February 2005 SDK, and it was the April 2005 SDK that actively tried to stop you from using it on Win2k.

As far as I'm aware, you can still deploy DX9 applications to Win2k - you just can't (well, not supposed to!) use it for development.

This is correct. Basically, our tools are starting to take dependencies on features of Windows XP and above. You can still develop for Windows 2000 and the DirectX Redist supports installing those components that support Windows 2000 (9.0c, etc...).

If you find yourself in dire need of developing on Windows 2000, you could always open up the downloaded package in WinZip or something and pull out the Include and Lib directories.
