Hi Damien,

I must disagree here. It is not at all practical to put both into one executable, and upgrading really is not a big issue for most. Running the Direct X web installer takes only a few minutes, and then you're all set. With the .net framework I can understand a little more as it is close to 300 mb as far as I remember, but Direct X is not as big of a deal I would say. People shouldn't be running out of date software anyway, as it makes application and game development considerably harder.


Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

Hi Louis,
I don't feel that people should be forced into upgrading.
I believe there should be a check to see which library will successfully
open the audio device. Start with XAudio2. If that fails, switch to
DirectSound. That way, there is no necessity to upgrade, but those who have
upgraded will still receive the benefits of the new system.
Regards,
Damien.

Why not make the switch? People should upgrade anyway, make a habit of it.
Maybe you could even incorporate XAudio2 within your installation so the
process is easier to upgrade. Just my 2 cents.
