I hope this double post is acceptable. I want to notify people who were looking for files that I found found them, but I cant send PMs and I dont think they will check this thread unless there is a new post.
3 files are different (all other files are byte-by-byte identical):
1README.TXT : "Beta 3" text is removed from the file and more details are added for folder content, i.e. it seems "Beta 3" was promoted to the Release version 2DXSDK.SIZ : don't know what that files does, only one number is different, I believe it could be due to different size of README.TXT 3DXSDK.INF : the difference is it just reflects the different size of README.TXT
So, basically "Beta 3" and the Release version of DX2.0 are the same. I am attaching the 3 different files from the MSDN disc plus screenshot.
[EDIT3] GameSDK, i.e. DX 1.0 that was previously mentioned in this topic:
I saw a reference to directx_9c_Dec04sdk_redist.exe somewhere and was wondering if it's reflected in the SDK. I always assumed there was just one redistributable for DirectX 9.0c, and that everything else starting from February 2005 was just optional additions (D3DX, Xinput, etc).
It doesn't really make sense, because the core runtime in something as late as the 2007 SDK seems to be dated to July of 2004, which coincides with the original release. What could a December release that year possible include?
Do not refrain from refusing to stop hindering yourself from the opposite of watching nothing other than that which is by no means porn.
