The DirectX SDK will continue to support Visual Studio 2008 as well. However, Visual Studio 2005 will no longer be supported.PIX: Object Naming SupportThe June 2010 version of PIX supports naming for most resource objects in Direct3D (D3D). Direct3D enables developers to attach arbitrary data to objects in D3D code using the SetPrivateData API for application-specific usage.

Version-less Naming of Cross-Runtime Data TypesThe June 2010 DirectX SDK removes versioning from several Direct3D data types that cross runtime versions. This change makes legacy data-type names equivalent to the new version-less data-type names. Therefore, you can use either legacy or version-less names. However, your code will be cleaner and easier to maintain if you use the version-less names.New D3DCreateBlob FunctionThe June 2010 DirectX SDK includes a D3dcompiler_43.dll that exports the new D3DCreateBlob function. Therefore, you are no longer required to use D3d10.dll to create and use an arbitrary length data object.New ID3D11ShaderReflection MethodThe June 2010 DirectX SDK adds the following new method to the ID3D11ShaderReflection interface:

Added additional header and lib information to reference pages for APIs implemented in DirectX samples.
I'm getting an error code "S1010" during the installation of the latest DIrectX SDK. There is currently little knowledge about what is going on around this issue, since it is very fresh (my internet search yields almost nothing on the subject). If there is nothing seriously wrong with my PC's setup, I tend to believe that this release was a bit hasty.
This could be caused by a number of things, if you're running a version of Windows earlier than Windows 7, you may have to install all the Service Packs before the DirectX SDK will install.
I encountered this issue too.First I tried to install it according to the clues offered in some bbs. Such as shut down windows audio service,close the anti-virus softwares. Besides I downloaded two different images from IE and firefox. And installed them on XP and windows 7. All failed. the S1010 error message turned out again and again. who can tell me how to solve this problem.
I'll follow up with the product team about S1010. I just did another install of the DX SDK without issues.
So the S1010 error message discussed in this thread is being tracked in this forum: forums.xna.com/.../334798.aspx
We continue adding more information there as it is available.
The s1010 error is due to some security issues. It happens when we download the setup suing Internet Explorer. I downloaded exactly the same file with firefox and then opera. Both files worked and installation was a success. So believe the problem is due to some bug in IE8
I was having the same issues. I downloaded and installed Firebox, re-downloaded the June 2010 release and it installed fine.
In my opinion, having to download a third-party browser to install this software is a sad statement.
OS: Vista SP2 x86
every time I install it an error keeps popping, its say cant install, retry later.
error code: S1010
Thank you for your time
June 2010 setup executable file has not been packed with files and settings! (<- its normal?)
Should i need to redownload it again?
