I have visual C++ and I downloaded the sdk and I thought I installed it because it said "Installation Complete" but when I try to compile some code, it tells me "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MyProjects\y\StdAfx.cpp(6) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'd3d8.h': No such file or directory". I know that the header file is on my computer so I don't know what's wrong!

You need to manually copy the include files and Libs into the appropriate Visual C++ directories.

Barf, no way! You just need to set up your project so that it knows where the SDK libs and headers live. Go to Project...Settings... and click the C/C++ tab. Choose Preprocessor on the Category drop down. In the text field under Additional include directories type in the path where your DirectX include files are, probably C:\DXSDK\include.
Now, click the Link tab and choose Input in the Category drop down. Under additional library path, type in the path where your DirectX libs are, probably C:\DXSDK\lib. OK, you should be in business now!
