Or at least the copy I've got sucks....
Anybody else having trouble with the run-time *.dll's that are installed with the DX8.1 SDK (ddraw.dll, etc.)? After installing the SDK (which updates your DX run-times), DX locks up every time I try to access it (DxDiag, games, etc.).
So I had to reformat my drive to get rid of the run-times (I know I could have gone through and deleted every *.dll, *.vxd and hack the registry, but this was easier). I installed the DX7.0 SDK (I only write in DX7 anyway) and I have NO problems.
Have you guys had any troubles? Or did I just get a bad copy on my CD?
