Hi. I am using Windows VISTA on a 64-bit machine. I am using DirectX 9.0c/C++/ and Visual Studio 2005. I need to turn on the debug version of Direct 3D through the Control Panel. However every time I select "Use Debug Version of Direct3D" and click /Apply/OK, Windows sets my version back to retail mode. Has anyone encountered this issue before or know how to resolve it? Thanks in advance!

The only time I've seen things like that happening was when I had a SDK version that was older than the runtime version (I.e using DX9.0b SDK with DX9.0c installed).

Failing that, are you running as Administrator? If not, it's quite possible it'll fail - all the control panel does is set the registry entry HKCU/Software/Microsoft/Direct3D/LoadDebugRuntime to 1, you could see if it's actually being set and if changing it manually makes any difference.

Thanks Steve!
Out of interest, what was the problem? Or are you still looking into it?
