Direct X 9.0a Problem

  FCD 20:00 25 Apr 2003

I recently updated my NVidia GE 2 Ultra to the latest drivers and downloaded DX 9a [I am running XP Home]. When I select DX DIAG, it loads ok until it reached Direct Play - I then get a message saying there is a problem in accessing Direct Play and asking if I wish to bypass it. If I accept, DX DIAG loads ok except that the "Network" page has no entries - other than that, all programmes appear to function ok. However, if I ask DX Diag to continue attempting to access Direct Play, windows quickly freezes totally, and I have to do a manual reset. Previous versions [DX 8] loaded without problems.

Grateful for any hints on where an answer might lie.

Many thanks to all.
