    WDDM V1.1 driver for vista 32 - Intel GM965 Mobile Express




      I am trying to run XNA 4.0 WP7 Emulator. It needs a WDDM1.1 compliant video driver to work.


      I installed today the latest driver for my system from Intel. The version is 7.15.0010.1666. Does it support WDDM1.1?


      Is there a WDDM 1.1 compliant driver for Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset for Windows VISTA 32? If yes, can someone provide a link?


      My system:


      HP Pavilion dv6500 Notebook PC 

      Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6002) Service Pack 2

      Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T7300  @ 2.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz
      Memory: 2038MB RAM

      DirectX Version: DirectX 11

      Card name: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family

      Driver Version: 7.15.0010.1666 (English)

      DDI Version: 10

      WHQL Logo'd: Yes


      Extra info:


      Tried to Uninstall / Install everything regarding WPDT, didn't work.


      In DirectX Caps Viewer there is an entry for D3D10_FEATURE_LEVEL_10_0


      I have Vista SP2 and KB 971644 installed.


      In VS 2010 Express for WP, the WP7 Emulator works for Silverlight, although when I added

      "Application.Current.Host.Settings.EnableFrameRateCounter = true;"

      it did not display any frame rate counters. I suspect hardware acceleration is not working for some reason???


      ------Starting Rants-----

      Rant 1) Please don't tell me to install Windows 7. If I had the money to do that I wouldn't bother trying to find a solution 2 days now

      Rant 2) I've been searching forums all day. Haven't seen a single case where someone with Vista was able to work successfully with XNA

      Game Studio and the Windows Phone 7 Emulator (except in CTP). I wonder why Microsoft has Vista as a compatible OS??

      Rant 3) I honestly thought of installing the Windows 7 driver for 965 to see if it could work...
