Simply re-install the DirectX 8 SDK from scratch.

Upgrading the OS will have removed the DirectX runtimes - the runtimes for Windows2000 work in a different way to those in Windows9x and therefore need reinstalling.

The official DX8 releases (i.e. not the stripped down unofficial ones) all install perfectly on Win2K without the need for any patches etc.

I''m running DirectX 8 on Windows 2000. I also have the Win2K Service Pack 2 applied. Everything seems to work great. I''d reinstall DirectX and see if that fixes your problem.

Good luck.
