Issues with installing SlimDX Mar 2009 (

Apparently there’s an issue with Gorgon installing SlimDX.  When the installer runs, it is supposed to detect whether the March 2009 SP1 (v2.0.7.41) SlimDX assemblies are installed.  If they are not, then it will install SlimDX for you.  However, it has come to my attention that the Gorgon install has not been installing SlimDX.

The issue is with the March 2009 SP1 SlimDX end user runtime installer (Gorgon runs this when it installs).  Apparently it’s not working, and even though I’ve tried to download it from the SlimDX site it still refuses to run (for me) and claims that the installer is invalid.

If you’re having issues running Gorgon applications because it can’t find the v2.0.7.41 SlimDX assemblies:
Could not load file or assembly ‘SlimDX, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b1b0c32fd1ffe4f9’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Then install the SlimDX March 2009 SP1 Developer SDK from here and all should be well again.
