Well, hlsl_enable was already set to 0 in all of the individual game .ini files. I set it to 0 in mame.ini - no change. Deleted all of the .cfg, .ini and .nv files - no change; still some games work some don't.
ADDED INFO: Set hlsl_enable to 1 and things seem to run in windowed mode now - still can't run in fullscreen w/o a D3D creation error.
MORE INFO: I can run MAMEUIFX in windowed mode, I can run mame in windowed mode (mame -window) but I can't get either emuLoader or Gamex to run mame even if mame.ini is set for mame to run windowed.
