I was trying to load a mesh from file in my DirectX 11 application.
As the base I took my own code (that renders some Primitives now) and I wanted to add to it code of mesh creating/rendering from "Basic HLSL" Project from DirectX 11 SDK Samples (which uses e.g. SDKmesh.h and DXUT.h from samples.

The mesh code is:
I was trying to load a mesh from file in my DirectX 11 application.
As the base I took my own code (that renders some Primitives now) and I wanted to add to it code of mesh creating/rendering from "Basic HLSL" Project from DirectX 11 SDK Samples (which uses e.g. SDKmesh.h and DXUT.h from samples.

The mesh code is:

[source lang="cpp"]
class FeyModel : public Graphic::Model, public FeyGraphicElement{
CDXUTSDKMesh mesh;
FeyModel(ID3D11Device * device, std::string filename, const Common::Point3D center){
mesh.Create( device, L"tiny\\tiny.sdkmesh", false ); //for now tiny.sdkmesh

void render(FeyShader * shader,
FeyCamera * camera,
ID3D11DeviceContext* context,
float t

UINT Strides[1];
UINT Offsets[1];
ID3D11Buffer* pVB[1];
pVB[0] = mesh.GetVB11( 0, 0 );
Strides[0] = ( UINT )mesh.GetVertexStride( 0, 0 );
Offsets[0] = 0;
context->IASetVertexBuffers( 0, 1, pVB, Strides, Offsets );
context->IASetIndexBuffer( mesh.GetIB11( 0 ), mesh.GetIBFormat11( 0 ), 0 );


//! context->PSSetSamplers( 0, 1, &samLinear );

for( UINT subset = 0; subset < mesh.GetNumSubsets( 0 ); ++subset )
// Get the subset
pSubset = mesh.GetSubset( 0, subset );

PrimType = CDXUTSDKMesh::GetPrimitiveType11( ( SDKMESH_PRIMITIVE_TYPE )pSubset->PrimitiveType );
context->IASetPrimitiveTopology( PrimType );

// TODO: D3D11 - material loading

ID3D11ShaderResourceView* pDiffuseRV = mesh.GetMaterial( pSubset->MaterialID )->pDiffuseRV11;

context->PSSetShaderResources( 0, 1, &pDiffuseRV );

context->DrawIndexed( ( UINT )pSubset->IndexCount, 0, ( UINT )pSubset->VertexStart );

I have also noticed that in the sample, there was a different vertex layout, so I have changed my shader's class code to (the code will be executed once, in shader's class constructor, before mesh creating):

[source lang="cpp"]
const D3D11_INPUT_ELEMENT_DESC layout[] =

UINT numElements = ARRAYSIZE( layout );

// Create the input layout
hr = device->CreateInputLayout( layout, numElements, pVSBlob->GetBufferPointer(), pVSBlob->GetBufferSize(), &*vertexLayout );

// Set the input layout
context->IASetInputLayout( *vertexLayout );

The compilation works. But during the execution of code I get error:

Access violation reading location 0x00000000

In SDKmish.h near:

[source lang="cpp"]if (bSRGB) {
// This is a workaround so that we can load linearly, but sample in SRGB. Right now, we can't load
// as linear since D3DX will try to do conversion on load. Loading as TYPELESS doesn't work either, and
// loading as typed _UNORM doesn't allow us to create an SRGB view.

// on d3d11 featuer levels this is just a copy, but on 10L9 we must use a cpu side copy with 2 staging resources.
ID3D11Texture2D* unormStaging = NULL;
ID3D11Texture2D* srgbStaging = NULL;

pRes->GetDesc( &CopyDesc );

pLoadInfo->BindFlags = 0;
pLoadInfo->CpuAccessFlags = D3D11_CPU_ACCESS_WRITE | D3D11_CPU_ACCESS_READ;
pLoadInfo->Depth = 0;
pLoadInfo->Filter = D3DX11_FILTER_LINEAR;
pLoadInfo->FirstMipLevel = 0;
pLoadInfo->Format = CopyDesc.Format;
pLoadInfo->Height = CopyDesc.Height;
pLoadInfo->MipFilter = D3DX11_FILTER_LINEAR;
pLoadInfo->MiscFlags = CopyDesc.MiscFlags;
pLoadInfo->Usage = D3D11_USAGE_STAGING;
pLoadInfo->Width = CopyDesc.Width;

CopyDesc.BindFlags = 0;
CopyDesc.Usage = D3D11_USAGE_STAGING;
CopyDesc.Format = MAKE_SRGB(CopyDesc.Format);

hr = D3DX11CreateTextureFromFile( pDevice, pSrcFile, pLoadInfo, pPump, ( ID3D11Resource** )&unormStaging, NULL );
DXUT_SetDebugName( unormStaging, "CDXUTResourceCache" );

hr = pDevice->CreateTexture2D(&CopyDesc, NULL, &srgbStaging);
DXUT_SetDebugName( srgbStaging, "CDXUTResourceCache" );
pContext->CopyResource( srgbStaging, unormStaging );
ID3D11Texture2D* srgbGPU;

pRes->GetDesc( &CopyDesc );
CopyDesc.Format = MAKE_SRGB(CopyDesc.Format);
hr = pDevice->CreateTexture2D(&CopyDesc, NULL, &srgbGPU);
pContext->CopyResource( srgbGPU, srgbStaging );

pRes = srgbGPU;

Precisely in the line:
[source lang="cpp"]
pContext->CopyResource( srgbStaging, unormStaging );[/source]

When I comment few lines of that function and something in my code (I now can't remember what line were that) I get the mesh in the window, but without textures. So I guess it's something with textures? I have the tiny model and texture in the proper folder, I have also set vertex layout like I have posted above.

What else should I do?

Please consider checking HREULT values for method Create and others.
Maybe you would pass a cannonical path instead of its short form.

      I hope this is the right place to ask questions about DirectXTK which aren't really about graphics, if not please let me know a better place.
      Can anyone tell me why I cannot do this:
      DirectX::SimpleMath::Rectangle rectangle = {...}; RECT rect = rectangle; or
      RECT rect = static_cast<RECT>(rectangle); or
      const RECT rect(m_textureRect); despite Rectangle having the following operator RECT:
      operator RECT() { RECT rct; rct.left = x; rct.top = y; rct.right = (x + width); rct.bottom = (y + height); return rct; } VS2017 tells me:
      error C2440: 'initializing': cannot convert from 'const DirectX::SimpleMath::Rectangle' to 'const RECT' Thanks in advance

      I'm trying to duplicate vertices using std::map to be used in a vertex buffer. I don't get the correct index buffer(myInds) or vertex buffer(myVerts). I can get the index array from FBX but it differs from what I get in the following std::map code. Any help is much appreciated.

      I am working on a project where I'm trying to use Forward Plus Rendering on point lights. I have a simple reflective scene with many point lights moving around it. I am using effects file (.fx) to keep my shaders in one place. I am having a problem with Compute Shader code. I cannot get it to work properly and calculate the tiles and lighting properly. 
      Is there anyone that is wishing to help me set up my compute shader?
      Thank you in advance for any replies and interest!

      Hi, right now building my engine in visual studio involves a shader compiling step to build hlsl 5.0 shaders. I have a separate project which only includes shader sources and the compiler is the visual studio integrated fxc compiler. I like this method because on any PC that has visual studio installed, I can just download the solution from GitHub and everything just builds without additional dependencies and using the latest version of the compiler. I also like it because the shaders are included in the solution explorer and easy to browse, and double-click to open (opening files can be really a pain in the ass in visual studio run in admin mode). Also it's nice that VS displays the build output/errors in the output window.
      But now I have the HLSL 6 compiler and want to build hlsl 6 shaders as well (and as I understand I can also compile vulkan compatible shaders with it later). Any idea how to do this nicely? I want only a single project containing shader sources, like it is now, but build them for different targets. I guess adding different building projects would be the way to go that reference the shader source project? But how would they differentiate from shader type of the sources (eg. pixel shader, compute shader,etc.)? Now the shader building project contains for each shader the shader type, how can other building projects reference that?
      Anyone with some experience in this?

      Have a problem with reflection shader for D3D11:
      1>engine_render_d3d11_system.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol IID_ID3D11ShaderReflection
      I tried to add this:
      #include <D3D11Shader.h>
      #include <D3Dcompiler.h>
      #include <D3DCompiler.inl>
      #pragma comment(lib, "D3DCompiler.lib")
      //#pragma comment(lib, "D3DCompiler_47.lib")
      As MSDN tells me but still no fortune. I think lot of people did that already, what I missing?
      I also find this article http://mattfife.com/?p=470
      where recommend to use SDK headers and libs before Wind SDK, but I am not using DirectX SDK for this project at all, should I?
