Hi everyone, I'm under Vista, when I start dxdiag I have directx 10 installed. But when I check the version in the registry I have the version 4.09.00.904 which corresponds to directx 9.0c and not 6.00.6000.18000 which corresponds to directx 10.0. Do you have any idea ? Thanks, Greg

Don't quote me on this but it could be a compatibility thing for cards that want DirectX 9. There could be another registry location that identifies 10. If dxdiag detects 10, then everything else should that supports it.

I think so,

It's a brand new laptop. I'm coming back to PC after some years on Apple :D (but I'm a windows dev).

I have a NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTX.

Anyway... I'll stick to directx 9 I think. I'm still not sure if it's worth developping on directx 10.

-- EDIT I can run DX10 samples so I have a dx10 card
