My hair has almost all fallen out! How the heck (For lack of a better word), do you get IntelliSense to work properly? I have installed DirectX 8 both at home (Windows 98) and at work (Windows 2000), running Microsoft V.C.++ 6.0 (SP4) on both computers. The directories for my "Include Files" and "Library Files" are correctly set up (Set up during DirectX 8 install. I have double and triple checked them!). In my project settings (Link -> Object/library modules) d3d8.lib is listed first. The first line of code in my cpp file is: #include When I type in Direct3DCreate8, use a pointer or whatever related to DirectX 8 and/or DirectX 7 (I had the same problem with DirectX 7 before installing DirectX 8), IntelliSense does not work! I can type "DirectDrawCr" and invoke IntelliSense and get "DirectDrawCreate" but not "DirectDrawCreateEx". Can someone please help? J.D. J.D. Hofer My goal is to live forever ... So far, so good

Try copying the header files to your VC include directory, and if that doesn''t work try manually adding the files to your project.

You''d think Micro$loth would do something about that, seems like a ton of people ask that question...



You reckon they''ll fix that in the next version of Visual Studio? If they don''t I''m not upgrading.
