Not long ago I downloaded both Visual Studio 2005 Express Beta 2 and Microsoft Platform SDK. I made a folder called PlatformSDK in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC directory and inside this folder I copyed the Include,Bin and Lib folders from Platform SDK install directory. I can compile win app but I dont know how to set up DirectX SDK with VS. One thought was to copy the content of DirectX SDK Include and Lib dir to Include and Lib dir found in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK. When I tryed to do this I was promted with a overwrite message. I would appreciate any help. [Edited by - Calin on August 11, 2005 4:26:47 PM]

The SDK installation should take care of setting up Visual Studio for you, if you have the recent version of the SDK.

Do you mean DirectX SDK?
I am asking this because I have DX9 SDK (June update)installed and still recive this error:
Linking...LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'dxerr9.lib d3d9.lib d3dx9.lib dxguid.lib winmm.lib.'

I have passed the libs in the linker in the wrong way. Works fine now.
