Hardware overlays in Windows 7 RTM

A while back I wrote about Direct3D9Ex overlays in Windows 7, based on some testing I'd done in Windows 7 RC. Well, I have Windows 7 x64 RTM installed now, so I thought I'd rerun my tests.

Same results. Can't create YUV overlays, LIMITEDRGB flag does nothing, no stretching supported.

Another API broken from the beginning. :(
