When I try and run one of the sun demos I get the following error:

The dynamic link library d3d8.dll could not be found in the specified path

I didn't find anything in the install notes or the FAQS.  My first guess is that this is a dx8 dll?

I'm on Windows NT.  Is J3D even compatible with NT?

Thanks

You need to use the OpenGL version on NT4, as NT4 doesn't have DirectX8 on it (got stuck at 5, I think).

So Java3D/DX is DX8?? I always thought they kept it with DX5.

Umm.. I thought all the dx apis use the newest since the old dlls are just referrals anyway. So it uses DX8 commands anyway? At least I think it would be poor design to have something as ancient as DX5 to float around, not to mention how things have developed since then.

I was afraid that we'd need to specify a minimum of DX8 just for the fact that JXInput needs DX8 and could have come along with DX5 otherwise. Puh.....
