    I have Win7 Ultimate x64, and it works fine here. Did you try reinstalling the drivers? That is a real shame you can't get DX11 to work. If I were you, I'd be getting to the bottom of it ASAP to figure out what the heck the problem is. :bang:

    But I guess you dont have RC version, and maybe this is where the problem is.
    I tried reinstalling the drivers many times(also with driver sweeper) and still it wasn't working. Now I'm using older drivers, and DX11 works fine, but I would really like to install new drivers, maybe then I would have some performance boost, and most of all maybe it would fix strange shadows in GTA IV, and Crysis would run normally, not with the artifacts.

    Exactly. Any driver release that preceeds the driver that you are currently installing is considered a legacy driver.

    Legacy drivers would most likely be drivers before a certain Catalyst Install Manager version as the current one can handle uninstallation and installation a bit better by removing the current driver and CCC version and then installing the latest one, as per WDDM in Vista and especially Windows 7 you don't even need to reboot afterwards as the driver will "reset" (Screen turns black for a short while during installation.)

    I'd recommend a clean install for beta versions and especially leaked beta versions however and as covered in a thread to the 9.12 display drivers it seems the install manager might not remove all traces before installing the new drivers, probably doesn't affect anything but worth knowing. :)

    Well i thought i find out myself.:) Borrowed windows 7 64 retail from a friend, did upgrade tested direct x, reinstalled rc tested direct x "no dx11". Clean install rc/rtm tested again both.

    Phew...

    Going on for almost 2 days and boring as hell it was.

    But now i have an answer to you guys and to myself. Direct x 11 support is now gone from windows 7 rc! And if you think otherwise check sdk caps viewer and heaven bench "wireframe on" it is lying to you.:)

    In windows 7 rtm my windows experience score for both aero and gaming graphics went up from rc 6.5 to 7.4 in release.:) Driver kicks ass in the retail version.

    And dx 11 is back in stalker, heaven caps viewer etc.:)

    There is DX11 in RC version, because I have it. As I said before I installed drivers from CD that was with the 5770 and DX11 works normally. In Heaven tesselation is working(checked with wireframe), in Stalker benchmark too, and in DIRT 2 too.

    I know. But i dont want to use any driver before 9.12 or the horrible ones on my cd.:) I just want dx 11 to work on 9.12 in rc.

    I also run 9.12hotfix and Windows 7 rtm, don't have any problems with dx11.

    Some other users experience also problems with W7 rc and 9.12 ,no dx11

    i have the newest hotfix driver and the 2.0 stream sdk and only opencl seems to be supported, no directcompute. is is because i have only a 4670?

    EDIT: After a reboot I'm back to no tesselation.

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    I finally have tessellation in Heaven!!! (I don't know about Directcompute & opencl yet, haven't checked). I don't know if it's the new 9.12 hotfix driver (I had no luck with 9.11 or 9.12 non-hotfix) or the extra precautions I took during install that did the trick, but something has.

    Here's what I did (things I did differently this time are highlighted in blue).

    Disabled Avast (free edition).
    Quit Zonealarm.
    Uninstalled Heaven (before drivers instead of after).

    Add/remove programs, ATi Install manager, express remove everything.
    Reboot into safe mode, run Driver Sweeper, remove all ATi display files.
    Reboot normally.
    Install drivers (9.12 Hotfix drivers this time).
    Install Heaven.
    Run Heaven, tessellation works!

    I currently have Windows 7 64bit Ultimate edition, but it's the RC 7100 build and that doesn't support DirectCompute. From what I've read on other forums, people with the 7600 build are OK.

    OpenCL is fine.

    DirectX 11 and tesselation works fine for me on the 7100 build, but I'm kinda bummed that DC isn't supported. Guess I'm gonna have to shell out for the retail version sooner rather than later!

    Unfortunately I get this problem (see my previous posts in this thread) and I'm using Windows 7 x64 Home Premium 7600 build.

    Someone on another forum suggested rolling back to the 9.11 drivers. I tried it and it all works. I now have OpenCL and DirectCompute:)
