GPU-Z installer can't find DirectDrawCreateEx in ddraw.dll (use ddrawex.dll instead?)

    Hi,
    Been unable to install GPU-Z on this system ever since I initially installed it.

    Windows 7 x64
    DirectX 11

    Installer throws error:
    Window title: "GPU-Z.0.4.3.exe - Entry Point Not Found"

    Window text: "The procedure entry point DirectDrawCreateEx could not be located in the dynamic link library DDRAW.dll."

    My system has a ddrawex.dll, which I presume has this function, whereas ddraw.dll does not. GPU-Z should try loading that DLL to find this function.

    Thanks.
