DirectX and VS .NET confusion

Recommended Posts

I'm working through a directX tutorial right now and i'm getting an include error: Cannot open include file d3d9.h no such file or directory. Do I have to download a separate DirectX library for this file or is it included with the .NET framework? And what exactly is the difference between directx and direct3d?

You'll have to download the DirectX 9.0 SDK. Check the msdn DirectX page for the latest download. Link.

As for the difference between DirectX and Direct3D:
DirectX refers to the group of API's developed by Microsoft, one of which is Direct3D, the API dealing with interfacing with the display device.
