Hi,

I found this info at the boards, and thought it should be easier to find, so that's why i made this thread.
I noticed that there's a directX error when you launch the desktop vr program with Vista. I came accross this solution:
Turn off the visual themes in the compatibility tab (as in the screenshot), that fixes the problem.



Greetings,
Bart

Old'ish thread, about a month, but I wanted to post thanking you. Thank you to the people who found this fix and thank you Zappzion for posting it in the support area. I've been having headaches trying to get things to work for awhile, and this fixed it. Thank you! :D

Thanks. I solve the problem by this method, too.

But this address the symptoms, not the cause.

I'm a rookie of DirectX develop, so I spend few hours to find bug.

The program always stop at this line:

device.Clear(ClearFlags.Target | ClearFlags.ZBuffer, System.Drawing.Color.Black, 1.0f, 0);

Or all objects about "device". And cause errors:

A first chance exception of type 'Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.InvalidDataException' occurred in Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3DX.dll
A first chance exception of type 'Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.InvalidCallException' occurred in Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.dll


So anyone can solve it?
