msdn.microsoft.com -- they know how to do DirectX. They want you to use it.

vc.net, aka vc7, can compile to native code just as vc6 does.

two advantages of vc7 over vc6 are better optimizer and better c++ standard compliance.

i think you just install directx sdk, and it will be automatically available in your vc.net. after that, start #include-ing and use directx .lib files.


My compiler generates one error message: "does not compile."

VC6 came with the DirectX 3 SDK wich is pretty useless. I have no idea what comes installed with VC7, but you could install the SDK into X:\...\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC7\ so you automaticly overwrite the older libs/includes/etc. That''s what I did with VC6 and it works like a sunshine. Although i am not sure if this works in VC7.

VC6 comes with DX5 headers and those are really useful.
You don''t even need the SDK.
