Could you tell us what app/game you are trying to run. (trail/demo

I have a game (Eve Online) that fails while detecting the direct modes.

Did you try the directx 2005-06-13 patch with the cvs from that day?
Eve basicly stops even before showing the login screen in current CVS
but shows the login screen with the old cvs + that patch.
