Hello, I'm trying to redist part of directx with my app, I've tried to do what's described in the sdk. In my installer I've added a custom install for directx and included the following files: Aug2009_d3dx10_42_x86.cab DSETUP.dll dsetup32.dll dxdllreg_x86.cab DXSETUP.exe dxupdate.cab However, when installed on another machine, when I try to run my program I'm unable to create a D3D10 device What am I missing? -- Sigurd

Is the other machine running Vista or Windows 7? Does it work if you download the full DirectX redist from microsoft.com on that machine?

It's running Vista.
I haven't tried installing the full sdk since I understand it can't be uninstalled so I wouldn't then later know if my installer works?

That's true, yes - but it would tell you if it's a problem with your code / machine or if it's because you're not distributing something.
You could try doing a system restore to roll back to before you install the full redist, but I'm not sure if that would work.

When you say you're "unable to create a D3D10 device", what is the actual error you get?
