Guys I think there are two ways of looking at this issue. Either Davy has to seamlessly embed the correct version of direct X in the installer, so the user has no idea it is being installed. Or, given the different versions that users may have on their PC, be that the default version installed with XP or Vista / W7, re-writes his code to make it less version specific. Both have pros and cons, however I think that the direction Davy is going, by incorporating the correct version in the installer is probably the easier option, even if it makes a 60+ MB download, these days most people have a reasonable internet connection speeds, so this wouldn't be a problem downloading such a file.
