I know that DX9 program can't run on Vista & Win7 platform.
DX10 program cant run on XP platform.
They are incompatible!

But XNA can run on XP, Vista, Win7 platform at the same time?

Thanks all!

Huh? where'd you get that information from?
DX9 runs on xp, vista & windows 7
DX10 & DX11 are only available on vista & windows 7

XNA uses DX9, so it works on xp, vista & windows 7 as well.

Thank you very much.
But i think dx9 run on vista & win7 should be very slow.
Is it correct? Thank you.

It's working perfectly fine, there are no performance implications.
Think about it, if this were true all games written for dx9 would run very slow on vista/7, this is not the case.

The Vista/7 GUI system is actually written in D3D9ex.


Okay, i know i'm nitpicking here, but the Win7 GUI is actually based on D3D 10.1 (which is also able to run on DX9 hardware like D3D11). ;)

I'm running a D3D9 (not ex) game on 7 right now, and getting very high performance on an Intel integrated thing. D3D9 is anything but slow on 7.
