Hello there, I recently created a DXapplication that shows a texturized mesh (normal, not skinned). I compiled it and it worked, but when I sent it to a friend he got this message: It isn't possible to open the application because it's configuration seems to be incorrect - The reinstalation of the application may correct this problem. I included the .xfile and it's textures, so I don't see why it shouldn't work. How can I solve this? -Stenny ---BTW--- I use the DX9.0 june 2006 SDK and MVSC++ 2005.

Perhaps you can run Dependency Walker on it to see what DLL(s) you might be forgetting to include.

Another problem might be that you did not compile the program in 'Release' and give it to him. (Normally, Debug is for you, the developer, and Release is for your end-users)

Oh stupid me. I never knew there is a releasebuild to (after some configuring I found the option). Thanks[smile]

It wasnt possible to start this application because d3dx9_30.dll wasnt found. The reinstallation of the application may correct this problem

I just need to include this DLL in the same folder as the exe itself? If so, where can I find it?

Please pick a more relevant subject title in future - your current one doesn't give a reasonable indication of what your question is about [smile]

Get familiar with DirectXSetup. Distributing just the DLL is against the licence agreement and A Bad Thing™.

Refer to The new FAQ stuck to the top of this thread. It's not fully linked together yet, but if you scroll down there is an entire section on redistribution - it should get you up-and-running with what you should be doing.

@jollyjeffers:
Well, I didn't know about the source of the problem, so this is the best I could do for a name...

@Everyone
It's not like I'm doing this for commercial stuff or anything, but it's always good to know I can't use them, so I'll have a check on DirectXSetup.

Thanks :)
