    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...

    Failed to create DirectX device

    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

    Actually, she posted that a reboot fixed the problem. I kinda thought
    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.
