    It's not a W7 only thing, Microsoft already announced DX11 is coming to Vista also, which is not that weird considering Vista and W7 have a lot of the same roots. I'm sure this puts the DX11 files on Vista installs but it hasn't been fully implemented yet, I'm sure there will be a huge update through Windows Update to get DX11 going on Vista (whenever that time does come).

    What I gathered this is just a dx update but the real DX11 update will come out after this beta http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=971644
    it seems vista is getting what looks to be an expansion or as M$ is calling it a platform update.

    well i ran dxdiag under vista, and it's still listed as dx10. Guess us vista-users will have to wait until the "real" update to get dx11.

    All you will ever need is this little codec package my friend...

    http://www.filehippo.com/download_klite_codec_pack/

    Contains probably every known codec ever (maybe an overstatement there), I have always used this never had any troubles and no matter what video file I download it plays in Media Player Classic, piece of cake.

    The first official beta showed DX11 already so nothing specail, we have to wait for Games and cards that are DX11 capable.

    oh, lol, now i have DX11 after installing that script. Though to clarify for others who haven't read the link, the script is only necessary for the beta period, after that you won't need it anymore

    Same here, didn't do anything though I'm assuming it's because I'm still on sp2b.
