Knowing M$ i reckon they probably have added a few, hopefully not quite as bad as the ones they fixed.
Oh well... I read somewhere that Dx8.1 wasn't going to be released till later this year. Like in the second half or something... maybe it was the second quarter... i forget.
Nevermind. It seems to work OK.
You guys sure this version is not a beta? Run dxdiag and check to see. I heard it was not suppose to be out until fall, so you might have a beta. I got a beta of Direct x 8 once, and because you cannot uninstall direct x, or replace it with an older version, I had to reinstall everything on my computers! Just make sure it's not a beta.
I'll check as well and let you know.

Ran dxdiag, doesn't say beta anywhere in mine. Oh wait theres one on MFC42.DLL Beta Retail (version 6.00.8665.0000) , all the other directx files are Final Retail.
I think that MFC42.DLL may be from something else cos i do a fair amount of programming on this computer as well, so its probably from programs related to that.
DirectX Version is 8.1 (4.08.01.0579)
Seems pretty decent to me.
Yeah i heard it wasn't due till later. Ahh well. It all seems good. It wasn't released in April the first as far as i know
No viruses that i can detect.
Leave it up to you i guess.

Oh well. Hopefully another version should be available before that happens. I've still got 8.0 on CD somewhere and i'm gonna do a new install soon (New HDD) But i think i'll stick to 8.1. Doesn't seem to do any harm at all.
