Dark GDK Help

Posted 27 February 2010 - 07:59 PM

I recently re-installed windows so everything was deleted. I put VC++ Express, Microsoft SDK August 2007, and Dark GDK all back on my computer. When I try to run my games, and even the sample games, I get the following errors:

.Failed to get device caps
.Failed to find valid stencil buffer
.Unable to create device
.Unable to setup 3D device
.Unhandled exception at 0x004d6c45 in Pickup.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000314.


Can someone give me a hand? My friend and I are in the middle of working on an FPS, and without my help hes gonna have some trouble.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Always create a backup before reinstalling. :)

Those errors are DirectX related. Did you make sure you installed the August 2007 DirectX SDK? Have you tried reinstalling DarkGDK?

Yep, reinstalled every component. And I know its the right SDK because I followed the link from the Game Creators website.

I really don't have much experience with these kinds of errors, so I'm low on ideas. Try updating your graphics drivers (the reinstall may not have installed the latest versions).
