Hi, I finally upgraded to Visual C.net 2003, after using MSVC6. Setting up the new software with directx9 august 2005 SDK seemed pretty straightforward. So far so good! So I opened my old VC6 project in the new version, and was asked if I wanted to convert to a VC6 project. I did. Strangely, the app which ran at about 90 fps when compiled in VC6, only ran at about 40 in the VC7 version! Can anyone explain this? I am baffled! Thanks for your help! Simon

Did you buy the Standard edition of the C++ compiler, or Visual Studio Pro? The Standard edition does not have an optimizing compiler. If that is the case, then you can download the VC++ 2003 Toolkit and tell VC to look in the toolkit bin directory for it's executables. Then manually specify the optimization options in the project command-line config.

No. The platform SDK has some things like the library manager (lib.exe), but no C++ compiler.
