Hi I am trying to compile some DirectX code. Is it posible to use VS 6 for this? I have read on the MSDN/DirectX webpage that VS 6 is no longer supported.

IIRC, the latest versions of the DirectX SDK no longer support MSVC 6. However, MSVC 6 does come with an older version of the DirectX library. So, you should be to compile some code with just the compiler. You should also be able to find older versions of the DirectX SDK for download with some searching.

Yes, Visual C++ 6 no longer will work with DirectX 9. If you can get a version of DirectX 9 before the December update, it should work.
