[SlimDX] Installation issues

Recommended Posts

Hello! I face two problems with the latest "SlimDX (September 2008).exe" installer. The development PC has VistaSP1 and VS2005 SP1 installed. 1. The minor problem is that after installation "C:\" root directory is flooded with VS2008 runtime files that are not correctly deleted by the installer. 2. The major problem is as follows. As I add reference to SlimDX in VS2005 from .NET list everything seems to be OK. But on application launch I get the following: REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG: Class not registered (-2147221164) Stack: at SlimDX.Result.Throw[T](Object dataKey, Object dataValue) at SlimDX.Result.Record[T](Int32 hr, Boolean failed, Object dataKey, Object dataValue) at SlimDX.Result.Record[T](Int32 hr, Object dataKey, Object dataValue) at SlimDX.XAudio2.XAudio2..ctor() I already reported the error earlier here. But it still exists. Here are some additional information: 1. the same error is thrown on other PC (WinXP SP2)

Sigh. I'm guessing the XAudio bit of the installation is shot again. I'm going to be redoing the installer completely this release...mind waiting a few weeks? (And if you can help me test, that would be nice too.)

Of course I can do testing on both Vista and XP PCs.

Actually, I really need to use SlimDX this week. I don't need a full installer, but can you just give me an advice how to cope with the problem? Any solution?

Currently the only working SlimDX library that I use on the developer PC is the one that I built myself in July from the sources. But it doesn't work on user PC either.

Thank you, Promit! Your suggestion works just fine.

I'd like to help you with testing, so I'll wait for the new installer and post the results here.
