Windows 7: New DX redustributable seemes to have updates

New DX redustributable seemes to have updates

At least it looked like that way to me.

File Name:directx_aug2009_redist.exe
Date Published:9/8/2009
Language:Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Swedish, and English
Download Size:103.3 MB

Download details: DirectX Redist (August 2009)

I have not played with it yet, but when it installed it appeared to copy a bunch of new files. Maybe it will help with some issues.

(PS, maybe it will create some NEW issues, or make others worse, YMMV)

PS, OK, I should have proof read the title, so sue me.

Looks like a nice DX update to me. More info Fudzilla

The Microsoft DirectX team recently released its DirectX End-User-Runtimes for August 2009. This multilingual update contains the first official release of the DirectX developer resources for Direct3D 11, DXGI 1.1, Direct2D, and DirectWrite. Developers can now publish and distribute Direct3D 11 applications and games that leverage all of the software and hardware features of DirectX 11 in Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

Additionally, the new Effects runtime for Direct3D 11 is now available as well as the D3DCSX library, which includes new technologies for utilizing DirectCompute for advanced processing on the GPU. This first version includes implementations of scan and Fast-Fourier transform that utilize Direct3D 11 capable GPUs. For software developers, the August 2009 DirectX SDK can be found here.

This DirectX end-user-runtime package includes security and performance updates for the core API interface between multimedia and gaming, along with many new features across all technologies, which can be accessed by applications using the DirectX APIs.

Nice find HRM Sometimes these things come out and I don't see them in the flood of updates.

MSE updates flagged in Win 7 updates but not XP Mode updates
I find it odd that when I do a Windows Update in Windows 7, the Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) updates are also found. But if I do a Windows Update in XP Mode, the MSE updates are not found. I don't suppose this is controllable? I'd like the Windows Update to find MSE updates.
