    OS = Operating sytem. Windows,Linux and Dos are operating systems.

    FAT16,FAT32,NTFS,EXT2,EXT3 are filesystems.An OS uses a filesystem to store data on a floppy,harddisk or cdrom.older OSes (DOS/Windows95/98/ME) using FAT,winxp and winNT using ntfs and linux uses ext2/3.

    a known limitation of older FAT-systems is,that they cant index pathes with more than 8(?) subdirectoris:

    c:dir1dir2dir3dir4dir5dir6dir7dir8dir9

    another limitation is,that your path+filename cant be larger than 255 characters.

    try to install to 'c:dx9sdk'

    hmm,stupid question,but... do you have enough space on c: to install the complete sdk?running setup.exe from a compressed archive needs extra disk-space for temporary files.

    Btw,this thread dont have to do lots with 3D-graphics,perhaps a moderator(Sephiroth?) can move it to dx-programming?

    i had 9.61 GB on my computer so i don't think it relates to the space. i really want to show you what is the problems occur on my computer, because i don't know what happened on my computer. But i know it is impossible. can i show you the problems occur during process by using the pictures?

    hmm,very strange.does setup create any other files successfully?for example the directgraphics-directory,the VB or c# samples,etc?

    what kind of pictures have you in mind?screenshots from what?

    @moderator,can we move this thread??
