I have an application that uses SlimDX for sound. The application installs and works on most computers. My installer install June 10 DirectX and MS VC++ 10 Runtime x86. I have one user who reports that my application crashes with an error message saying "Cannot load SlimDX or one of its dependencies." We have checked that the correct SlimDX is installed in the GAC, DirectX June 2010 is installed, and MS VC++ 10 runtime is installed. I can't think of anything else that would cause the error to be displayed. Has anyone run into this problem before? Any ideas? The call that is failing is

"DirectSound ds = new DirectSound();"

Not much should go wrong there.

Well, it turned out that installing the DirectX SDK fixed the problem. Why simply installing the DirectX runtime didn't fix it makes no sense.
