Post » Tue Sep 27, 2011 11:31 pm

how can be possible that if game is exported it does not work on windows 7 with DX11.

It writes this: "you need the august 2008 directx update in order to run this application"

any ideas?

What I don't understand:
I sent a game to a friend, a simple .exe with no instructions whatsoever. The next day I asked if there were any problems. Answer: "No, started the application, it wanted me to install something, I agreed, and the game runs nice."
Could it be that often people just ignore the window that tells to install that needed files?

On vista/windows 7 the target computer (on which the game will be played) HAS to install DX 9.c.

So no, no converting.
Also, having DX9 and a more recent version installed in parrallel should not cause troubles.
