DirectX 9_1, D2DRenderTarget EndDraw Out of Memory Exception RRS feed

  • Question

  • My code works fine for DirectX 10 and up (and I'm pretty sure it used to work with 9.1 in the pre-release version of VS 2012).

    Anyway, if I now limit the feature level to 9_1, ID2D1RenderTarget::EndDraw throws an out of memory exception after a single glyph run of 16 glyphs.  Specially, the EndDraw's hresult is: Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.

    Any suggestions?

  • Some more detail--I'm pretty stumped at how to debug this:

    // this is in a loop that draws a few glyphs to a render target
    DWRITE_GLYPH_RUN glyphRun = { 0 };
    glyphRun.fontFace = m_fontFace.Get();
    glyphRun.fontEmSize = m_fontSize;
    glyphRun.glyphCount = count; // count was 1 for this test
    glyphRun.glyphIndices = glyphs;
    glyphRun.glyphAdvances = advance;
    D2D1_POINT_2F pos = { px, py };
    DebugMessage("drawing glyph...");
    d2dTarget->DrawGlyphRun(pos, &glyphRun, m_whiteBrush.Get());
    This is the output:

    drawing glyph...

  • Ah, found this exact same issue here:


    Checking "Disable Feature Level Upgrade" in the directx control panel with feature level 9_1 selected works.  Which, I believe, means that the code should work correctly on a system that only support feature level 9_1.

    I'm going to close this and move any further comments over to the original thread about this.
