[SlimDX] DrawText not possible in XP

Recommended Posts

Is it right that SlimDX DrawText methods are not possible to be used within Windows OSes below Vista due tu the coupling of DrawText to Direct2D? The SimpleText Sample does not run on XP. Do you have other suggestions for drawing Text on XP Systems? Thanks for an hint. Cheers and nice time Andreas

Are you running the correct sample? Windows XP doesn't support DX11 (or DX10 for that matter), so there should be no such coupling as Direct2D is a DX11 feature. I think you might be attempting to run the wrong sample.

Look into the SlimDX.Direct3D9.Font class.
