Hello everyone i have a problem with my directX SDK or maybe somthing else is wrong but i reinstalled it twice, im using visual C++ .net and when i load the solution by double clicking it in the file for example, billboarding, it loads fine, but when i compile it, it says missing directory or file d3d9.h, d3dx9.h......etc i checked the include folder and these files are clearly there, so whats the problem (note: im very new to C++) i also have the summer 2003 patch

When you installed the new sdk it probably changed the directory that had the headers, at least, that''s what happened on my machine. Check to see that your IDE is looking in the right SDK directory.

You also haven''t added the library directory to your library path.


How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

The other thing to say is that maybe doing C++ programming and esp DirectX work might be a big bite to take? You probably need to start with basic system management rather than core programming. Granted not every one had experience with DOS or other command based os''s (thanx bill) but you need to crawl before you can walk.

Have fun, the journey starts with one step...

Don''t be a crybaby. This is better for you in the long run. Hopefully you''ll learn how to look things up yourself...wouldn''t that be nice?

Yup. But if reading''s not your thing, you could just hunt around in the menus.
