"could not create Direct3D device" sound like a driver and/or DirectX issue to me.
All of a sudden I can run very few games on Windows 8 that I used to be able to. For instance, Diablo 3 encounters an unexpected error, Dungeon Siege 3 says it couldn't created Direct 3D device, no games for windows games like Fable 3 or Dirt 3 will work. Do any of these games work for you guys? In particular Diablo 3? I wonder if I need to reinstall them...

I have 304.79. How do I install the latest DirectX? When I google it I see references to version 9 but isn't DirectX up to 11 now?

Well, I just reinstalled my video drivers and Diablo 3 and Dungeon Siege 3 both work now. All games for windows live do not however, but I suspect that may be fixed as the retail release of W8 approaches.

Something's been bugging me ever since I heard they had started to push Skype updates via Windows Update.
If WU can update Skype, why the feck are they not using it to keep DX9, GfWL, Windows Essentials, etc up to date also? It's most annoying.
