A few months ago, as my first real foray into C# programming, I wrote a small program/dll that allowed me to compile .hlsl and .fx files directly into COFF files that I could link into my program. It worked great for a few months. Now I'm having a small problem.
In writing the dll I used the SharpDx package to get access to the D3DCompiler API. It seems by default this uses an older version of the d3dcompiler_XX.dll (I think its version 43, I don't remember exactly). I need to use a more recent version of the compiler dll, in particular I would like to use d3dcompiler_47.dll. Being somewhat of a noob when it comes to C#, I haven't been able to figure how to do it. Googling didn't turn up anything useful and I tried copying d3dcompiler_47.dll to various directories with no avail. Anyone have and ideas?
