3d mark 2001 question

vbimport

#1

On my system, I have DirectX9.0a installed. Then I downloaded 3dmark2001, the requirements on the webpage said dx8.1 or higher, but when I tried to run the program, it said I must have directx8.1 installed. Does this mean that I can only run 3dmark2001 with 8.1 and not 9.0?

Have you installed the 3Dmark2001 upgrade as well?


#3

I’m pretty sure you need 3DMark03 to see any benefits from DirectX 9.0a. But it should still run. Have you run dxdiag to see if all is well there?


#4

@ rdgrimes What is dxdiag and where can I get it?


#5

dxdiag
start-run-dxdiag


#6

im using DX 9a and 3d mark 2001se runs fine.


#7

same here…but i have al patches installed


#8

I intalled dx9, but for some reason, 3dmark2001se only detects dx8.0 :confused: . I downloaded dx9 off the Microsoft web site too :frowning: .

EDIT:
Oh btw, I forgot to say that i’m trying to test integrated gf4mx on an abit nforce2 board. Will 3dmark2001se work on this?

You must uninstall 3dmark and re-install for it to detect DirectX9 if 3dmark was already installed when you upgraded DirectX according to Futuremark’s FAQ page.

dxdiag - installed with directx - DirectX DIAGnostic. i believe its been installed with every version since 6…but lemme check neways.

//cant find it, but i think thats the case. invaluable utility when your graphics/sound in games goes nuts.


#11

go to;
start
run
then type; dxdiag


#12

cant find when the first version of dxdiag came out, as in with directx (whatever)
