Hi all,

I cannot get the screen updated with a fresh installation of my software:

MPL3D Solar System v1.5

Please let me know if anyone is executing DGDK in Windows 10.

Thanks

I have performed some testings and DGDK apps run perfectly fine on Windows 10.

I'm investigating why my program freezes at the main loop.

Maybe it is some DGDK function that Win10 doesn't like, maybe it's another thing.

It looks like fixable since other DGDK apps run well, but my code does some fancy things and overall functionality could be affected for my project. I hope this is not the case.

Windows 10 full compatibility would open a long range of updates for my software. It is strange that, it runs, but obviously it doesn't behave the same than Win7 or Win8.

I'll keep you informed

OK. Problem solved.

All I did is to re-compile the whole project in Windows 10 and the problem was gone.

The .exe generated in Windows 10 runs fine in Windows 10 and in other windows.

For that, I had to install VS2008 and DX Development kit August 2007, copy the DGDK libraries and includes and configure their paths at VS2008. All without problems.

Awesome result that speak by itself:



Now ready to keep on developing and updating my DGDK project for years.

Great news indeed.

Hi, Morcilla !
Excuse me, please, I was very busy with my C#/.NET courses.
Today I have tested your program on Windows 10. It works fine, without any problems.
I have installed Win10 several months ago, and all my DarkGDK games and programs runs good, without any problems.
And yes, I use old good VS2008, and continue writing my games with DarkGDK
Good luck! Желаю удачи!

Thanks for testing the software, I'll be around here too if you need something.
And you please post any advances with those games, alright?
All the best and Желаю удачи!
