Howard, I think you would be better suited by simply saving up your lunch money and ordering the CD.

What version of the SDK were you downloading. I think I still have the entire set from when I downloaded them a few month back. I could give you a URL to them, if they match.

EDIT: I have the November 2001 one

Anyway, I put them here for you:
http://www.profundis.se/files/PSDK-FULL.3.cab
http://www.profundis.se/files/PSDK-FULL.6.cab
http://www.profundis.se/files/PSDK-FULL.8.cab

(Stupid FTP program! I can''t copy them remotely, so I''ll have to copy them to my home and then put them back, so it will be a few minutes.)

I''m with LessBread on this one:

1) Just e-mailing you the headers and libs which you copied on top of the official ones would end up with a horribly messed up build environment - the PSDK installer registers new environment variables, updates all the tools etc.

2) I installed the CD version of the PSDK on this machine, so I just checked the size of the e-mail attachment you''re asking for: 273Mb!!!. That''s including the Win64 and Prerelease stuff. Without those it''s still ~66Mb which isn''t going to be much different to downloading 100Mb from the MS site. In fact when you consider that sending it by e-mail will BASE64/UU encode the data, the size of the e-mail you''re asking someone to send would be 132Mb. Which would most likely bounce too!

3) Where do you live? I''m in Europe (UK), and the CD only cost me $15.95 including *international* shipping. Going by UK exchange rate''s thats the equivilent of roughly: a) two monthly PC magazines. b) entry fee to a nightclub for one night. c) four bottles of beer in a bar. d) a box of branded CDRs not too much really - especially if you put a cost on the stress and your time downloading ~100Mb from MS or ~132Mb from your e-mail provider. And you get the full thing including all the samples etc, which you can install on any machine as many times as you like (i.e. no repeat 100Mb download if you have to reformat your dev machine etc). -- Simon O''Connor Creative Asylum Ltd www.creative-asylum.com #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites I think you just summed it up: why would he pay for a lousy programming CD when he could be drinking 4 beers with that money? Mmmm...beer... #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites If you want I could try bzip'ing the latest PSDK CD ISO image (I have an MSDN subscription) and you could download it in several 1 MB chunks. I'd include MD5 sums for each chunk so you can verify the download was good for each section. You could then re-assemble it and then burn directly to a CD. Please e-mail me if you're interested (place GAMEDEV somewhere in the subject line), I'd be able to start uploading over my cable connection tonight. bzip compression should be able to shave almost 100 mb off of a 600 mb file, even if it is compressed via cab's or whatever...

CWizard : Thanks for the files, but i don''t think they will work. I was downloading Build 5.2.3663.0 which is the July 2002 release. I am missing files 3,6,8 and 15.I need the core sdk, in files 3,6 & 8. 15 contains the MDAC SDK S1CA : quote: 1) Just e-mailing you the headers and libs which you copied on top of the official ones would end up with a horribly messed up build environment - the PSDK installer registers new environment variables, updates all the tools etc. I dont plan to overwrite my old files. I would extract the new files in a seperate folder, and include the path in VC++ Options>Directories . And AFAIK the enviroment variables are only required by the files in the bin dir.The headers and libs dont need enviroment vars.I will be missing the tools & samples, but its still better than nothing. quote: 2) I installed the CD version of the PSDK on this machine, so I just checked the size of the e-mail attachment you''re asking for: 273Mb!!!.

In fact when you consider that sending it by e-mail will BASE64/UU encode the data, the size of the e-mail you''re asking someone to send would be 132Mb. Which would most likely bounce too! i just want the headers and lib, which according to you are ~66MB. If u rar them, you will find that it shrinks to 10% ie 7-8 MB, which you have to admit is a LOT better than a 100MB. quote: the CD only cost me$15.95 including *international* shipping. Going by UK exchange rate''s thats the equivilent of roughly:
a) two monthly PC magazines.

Well, it would cost me more than 10 monthly PC magazines.But, the point is I dont have the money right now, however I do have ~200 hrs left in my net account. So this would just be simpler.

SilentReaper : Appreciate the offer, but redownloading 500 mb would mean that I get the final thing a few months hence, and I have already been waiting since july. Still, if nothing better comes up, I will mail you.

To sum up :
The best solution would be if someone could post the missing files from build 3663.0 for download.
Failing that, could someone just rar and mail me the headers & lib dirs?
Otherwise, I guess i will get started on the new August ver of the SDK thats up for download, and hope to get it completed by oct.

where are you downloading this thing from? what''s the exact url ''cos i can''t find it... :confused:

##### Share on other sites

To bad they didn''t match. I didn''t even know they had a July 2002 build. They are a bit irregular, aren''t they? Nov 2002-July 2002-Aug 2002.

##### Share on other sites
So how about sending me the headers and the libs from their PSDK?

##### Share on other sites
Build 3663, is that the newest SDK? I haven''t downloaded it, but could do it now. Could be a few minutes though, I only have a 10mbit connection Actually more worried if I have the disk space...

(sorry for the size, was lazy)

Well, it''s down. (Had to delete and shuffle some, but managed ). Going to install it now, so if you could try to tell exactly what stuff you want compressed (I wouldn''t attempt to this sort of patching myself), I''ll rar it and give you an URL. I could also make volumes of it. What is a good size? 1, 2, 5 MB?

##### Share on other sites
Damn! Nowonder you are so happy downloading large files. You speed is at least 260 times faster than mine.

Howard Roark, I tried to send you an e-mail (to the one in your profile), but it was returned. I''ve rared up the includes and lib folder, and you (and everyone else interested, I guess) can find a download page here:

CWizard : Thanks a lot ! I'll be eternally grateful.

!!! I am connected right now at 26400 bps
I'll start the download right now and should be completed by tomorrow. Latest by Monday.
Finally, time for some XP programming!
Soon the world shall be mine !! < insert maniacal laughter >

Thanks again !

BTW : the mail id is [ hum at mail.com ] . I dont even recollect giving the mail id included in my profile. Is there some way to correct it ? Cause i'm logged in right now and its not editable.
