I just recently installed Microsoft Visual Studios 2002 (academic edition) and then i downloaded and istalled DirectX 9.0c. I can't seem to open a directX project in the Visual Studios. I simply don't have an option for a DX project. So what do i have to do, to have my Visual Studio open a DirectX project. Thanks

DirectX is not a project type as far as I know... but just extra functionality for C++... so there is no specific for DirectX.

Unless you have used some version/type of Visual Studio that I haven't used.

Create a Win32 project and add the necessary libraries. You can take a look at the sample solutions to see what library files are needed (Or check the documentation for functions you get linker errors for [smile]).

Basically, you'll need d3d9.lib, and d3dx9.lib, and dxguid.lib.
