If "use" means develop: yes, download the SDK
If "use" means play game: yes, download redistributable

First set a project reference to the assembly (right click the project) e.g.: Microsoft.DirectX.dll

Then you can type the following statement in your VB-code:

Imports Microsoft.DirectX

Thanks. Use means develop btw. If anyone has a spare moment, could you show me the statement used to import the library?

If you've downloaded the SDK, then make sure you take a look at the samples for VB.Net - they're a great reference source.

I'm at work right now, so can't double-check - but if the VB.Net samples are at all similar to the C++ ones, you should have 5 or 6 "tutorial" samples. Make these your first stop as they're usually very clear, concise and will help you get your head around the basic config/setup stages.
