Recent DirectX 9 SDKs have dropped support for VC6. You will have to roll back to an earlier SDK version or upgrade to a new Visual Studio - sorry.

but there is a prjconverter on www.codeproject.com which converts sln/vcproj files to dsw/dsp so you can use them.
Anyway I have recently updated also DirectX SDK but I have problems with UNICODE. Nothing wont compile because of "DXUT requires a Unicode build" error.
Any suggestion?

There's a thread around here somewhere explaining why it wont' work too!
All SDKs before the October 2004 SDK support VC6 directly. To use VC6 with the October SDK, you'll need to download the extras package, which includes the libraries compatible with VC6.

As of December 2004, VC6 is not and never will be supported. You can get hold of the freely available Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 and use the embedded compiler instead.
