I need to write drivers for hardware, using DirectX commands.  Can I use Delphi for this or must I use MS VisualC or VisualBasic.  All examples seem to be based on these but I use only Borland products.  Am I stuck or what?

If you want a WDM driver then you need MS VC++. Delphi simply cannot generate the required code.
Accessing DirectX from an app is easy.

If you have examples doing similar things that you need done in VisualBasic I'm fairly sure the same thing can be done in Delphi.
