When just changing the present parameter "windowed" to false, and so switching to fullscreen, the application crashes with a "d3d invalid call exception" when starting... How to change to fullscreen correctly?

For the fullscreen mode you have to set some additional parameters.

BackBufferWidth and BackBufferHeight need to be set to a size that your card and display supports.
IDirect3D9::EnumAdapterModes helps you to find valid modes.

BackBufferFormat need to be set to a format that your GPU supports.
IDirect3D9::CheckDeviceType helps you to find a valid format.

EDIT: Sorry have not see the MDX.

In this case you need:

Yep, you need to specify resolution and bitdepth etc etc. This code will allow fullsreen:

pp = new PresentParameters();
pp.Windowed = windowed;
pp.BackBufferWidth = screenWidth;
pp.BackBufferHeight = screenHeight;
pp.AutoDepthStencilFormat = DepthFormat.D16;
pp.BackBufferCount = 2;
pp.BackBufferFormat = Format.R5G6B5;
pp.DeviceWindow = CreateAndUpdateGameWindowTask.GameWindow;
pp.DeviceWindowHandle = CreateAndUpdateGameWindowTask.GameWindow.Handle;
pp.EnableAutoDepthStencil = true;
pp.MultiSample = MultiSampleType.None;
pp.PresentationInterval = PresentInterval.Immediate;
pp.PresentFlag = PresentFlag.None;
pp.SwapEffect = SwapEffect.Discard;
pp.ForceNoMultiThreadedFlag = true;

// Create the device
device = new Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Device(0, DeviceType.Hardware, CreateAndUpdateGameWindowTask.GameWindow, CreateFlags.SoftwareVertexProcessing, pp);

I ripped right out of my engine, you probably want to remove/edit values.
