Not an immediate problem, but the news of a separate 2D component in DirectX once again is very interesting!

I installed the June 2010 DirectX SDK, and tried to compile a Direct2D test. However, it reported an error of missing "D2D1.dll".

Yup, I'm using Vista and Direct2D is a Win7 tech, but then on MicroSoft's website it claims that installing Service Pack 2 will add Direct2D to Vista. So I did that but alas, still no cigar...

I don't actually need to switch over to Direct2D just yet, but it would be nice to know more.

Now, If that is displayed in German: I'm sorry :)

D2D and DWrite are in the Windows SDK, not the DirectX SDK


Ah! I set the usual include and library paths to the DirectX folders. Its not asking for the DLL any more so I should be free to experiment further.

Many thanks! ^_^
