Let me start from the top. I wan''t to make some program using directx (9.0 or 8.1) but I''m missing 2 files d3d8.h and d3dx8.h (or d3d8 ,d3dx9) . someone told me that it is not going to work eaven I had those two files... what files do I need ...and the size of the files must be as small as they can...because my connection speed is too low ..so I can''t download whole sdk(189 mb). I have some files like .lib files ...byt I missing .h files . Can anybody help me,can anybody tell me what do I have to do to make my directX (8.1 or 9.0) work in VC++ . Please ! I''m novice in this..so can you tell me ful procedure to make directX to work. Thanks forth.

you need to download the SDK, but I think there is a zip out there only with the files that you need (something like 10 MB)

give it a search in google...

I have the DX9 headers packed up in a .rar file (approx. 5Mb).

I'll send you a mail asking if you want them and if you do ill mail em to you.

EDIT: Oops, I mean its got the headers and the libs needed.

Here is the download site for DirectX:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/downloads/list/directx.asp

In particular, it sounds like you''ll want the DirectX 9.0b SDK for C++ developers.

Hope that helps,

G''day!

The C++ SDK that Jon mentioned is "only" 99MB. That''s still fairly large, but a lot more manageable than the full 189MB version.

If you just get the headers and libs, you won''t have the developer (debug) runtime. The debug runtime is an INCREDIBLY important tool. If you use a download manager (www.getright.com) then you should have no problem getting the SDK.
