Physics problem
I am new to Esenthel engine. So far it seems to be exactly the kind of engine I'm looking for. Unfortunately I've not been able to use any of the tools yet. I have followed the installation instructions.

The error I'm getting:

Can't initialize physics.
Please make sure you have PhysX DLL files in the application folder, and the correct path is used for physics initialization method.

What I'm using:

Microsoft Windows 7 64 bit
Visual Studio 2010 (Visual C++)
Computer with latest drivers and Direct X 10

I did see an old post of someone who had the same problem and who did not find a solution for the problem.

I'd appreciate any advice.

Thanks

RE: Physics problem
I'm assuming this is after you build/run in vs.

Code:
Physics.create(CSS_NONE,true,"../Installation/PhysX");

this line indicates the location of the physx .dlls

Please make sure you direct your code to the right location of the dlls/have the folder in the right location depending on where you set up your project.

You can copy the DLL's to the tools folder (from sdk/installation/physx)
or
install Nvidia PhysX System Software from nvidia website

I had PhysX installed, but copying the files did the trick.

Thank you!
