Hello all,
I've a simple app that is based on SlimDX, march '09 sdk, i've built and run locally on my win7 machine and all is well. however, several of my users are still on winXP, SlimDX fails to load due to missing d3d depentant dlls.

d3d10.dll and a few others, which don't appear to be part of the d3d redist (at least not for xp).

how are others getting around this runtime dependency of SlimDX on d3d10 dlls that aren't installed on XP boxes?

thanks in advance!
c.

Don't use D3D10 and SlimDX won't load any D3D10 DLLs. Are you sure your users got all required D3D9 DLLs? You should tell them do a DirectX update to be sure.

thanks for the reply.
i actually just found my problem...
my deploy step was silently failing to send the SlimDX dlls to the right location. it was the failure to link SlimDX not it's dependents that was the real issue.

sorry for the spam!
