Dx7 & Win95

Recommended Posts

Can I build apps with Dx7 on Win95? At the bottom of IDirectDrawSurface7::Blt doc, it says Windows 95/98: Requires Windows 98. There are others like that, but less than half of all. So I MUST have 98 for those labeled as "Requires Win98"?

Hi,

I am developing games using the DirectX 7 API and Visual C++ 6 on Windows 95, and I haven''t encountered any problems. Maybe Microsoft says that just to try and get you to buy 98 Give it a try and you should be alright.

Thank you, I won''t have to go look for older Dx then... phew. So is that reference thing really just to get us to buy 98?? Does anyone know what that "Required" field means in DirectX docs?
Typically, they look like this:

quote:

Requirements
Windows NT/2000: Requires Windows 2000.
Windows 95/98: Requires Windows 98.
Header: Declared in ddraw.h.

No clue. Works fine for me too.

Probably just a typo. The docs seem to be full of them.
