Default Curious finding.


The DirectX Diagnostic Tool tells me that I'm running DirectX 9.0b. However, in the Network tab, under Registered DirectPlay Service Providers, I have only DirectPlay 8 providers listed. They're all either version 5.03.0000.0900, or 5.03.0000.0903. If I'm running DirectX 9... why do I have DirectPlay 8 service providers?

I posted this because I'm still trying to figure out why I'm getting the strange error for my card game (which will use DirectPlay). I noticed that the ChatPeer program that came with the DX SDK worked in Windows, but not in the VS 02 debugger (with DX 9 references added by me). I also noticed that when the program starts, it listed only DirectPlay 8 service providers.. that's when I checked the Diagnostic Tool to be sure. Could this be the problem? Is my program not working because I have references to DirectPlay service providers that don't exist?

Okay, there's even more. Looking in the DirectX Files tab, I found that dpwsockx.dll (the TCP/IP provider) has a date of 4/12/2004, version 0903. Further down, there are a bunch of Microsoft.DirectX.* files, all with the date 6/4/2004 (I know why it's that date.. Framework trouble :X). The latest version on those is 5.03.0001.1126. That is the version of my Microsoft.DirectX.dll file. I also have a Microsoft.DirectPlay.dll file in 0900 and the 1126 version. It seems to me that these DirectX 9 sample programs are using my DX8 service providers and working. When I try to force DX9 on them, they don't want to work. What I don't understand is why I can't see (or don't have) any DirectPlay 9 service providers.

Sounds a bit strange. Try this:

I finally resolved the problem after reading a post in another forum...
Accidently the SDK-Installer does NOT unpack the required .dll which is located in this dir:

C:\DXSDK\SDKDev\Retail or C:\DXSDK\SDKDev\Debug

the name of the archive is dxnt.cab (for XP I guess)

Just unpack it to the dir mentioned by darxpan and add the needed .dlls as a reference... now everyting should work fork, well at least for me it did

Yeah. I already did that. I had to do that to fix that problem, but now I have this one.
