We wrote this several times on our site: "for WindowsXP/Vista you may also need"

Update your DirectX9 Runtime :-D

here you go:

another chance is to switch to "unstable" with our Updater and Update.

Hmm, the link you posted here is august2009, our main.lua still suggested the november2008 version for download, i updated it, maybe that was the problem.
As far as i understood the problem occurred even after downloading the version suggested by iris when encountering the error.

Mh yes. Our Mainpage & our Download Page suggests "august2009" update.

It's a pain to check this dependency for every release, because Steve changes this with every Ogre release :-(. But i committed the newest Direct3d dll in our Iris2/bin directory. So this problem would not occour even if someone has an old DirectX runtime.

But the current release is not up2date, so we should create a new release today.
