Thank you- I tried that already and it didn't work. However, I did a reboot
on my system, and everything is working now. Ghosts in the machine I
suppose...

I had exactly the same thing and I finally reinstalled my original Graphics card software, and it all works fine, windows 7 must have installed what it thought was my card.

lost directX device
I've just purchased a new computer with Vista- my standard games(free cell,
mah jongg, hearts...) were all working fine, but now I get a critical error
message 'failed to create directX device' when I try to open any of them.
What's wrong, and how do I fix it?

I don't think they offer DX10 as a direct download, as Vista has it
pre-installed, and it won't work with Vista

As for the solution to the problem, it may be video driver related. You
might try reinstalling the video drivers for your video card. It may have
had a Windows Update that installed and messed them up

people already knew to dothat first, for every problem :

And didn't you mean.."Vista already has it pre-installed, and it won't work
with XP ?" Or are you telling us dirty little secrets about Vista and
DX10...hmmmm

Yes, that's what I meant! Saw that this morning after reading over it.
Oops

I thought rebooting was one of the first steps for troubleshooting things
like that as well. :

It won't work with XP. DX10 is only available for Vista due to major kernel
changes. Making it for XP would be too big of a project, and would pretty
much upgrade XP to Vista in the process

So, if you want to play DX10 games you will need Vista. And after seeing
some of the videos and screenshots of some, why wouldn't you!? :-) If you
haven't heard of Crysis, look it up. And another favorite of mine: Flight
Simulator X is coming with a patch the end of this year (hopefully!) to add
DX10 features.
