D2D or Direct2Drive are games which you download from online game stores such as Steam. They're digital versions of games.

He knows that, I think what he's asking is in regards to trainers for D2D downloads (i.e. non steam) would he be after the Retail trainer or not. For which the answer is - it depends on which game it is. :/

Yeah, I know they are DL games, I meant in regards to trainers as FireflyPoi pointed out. So I assume that the only way to tell which trainer to use is to DL the steam and retail versions and whichever one works i keep. I do like Loop's sig regarding Space Marines...I'm a fan of Warhammer 40k....I can't wait for the Retribution Expack to come out.

They are probably considered their own version. The code in the executable is different since it's written to run without the disk (compared to retail versions). They're also different than Steam releases because those games are written to use the Steam API.

So yeah.
