Hi. I'm still using Visual C++ 6.0 (still the best imo), I've just installed the latest October DirectX SDK and for some reason IntelliSense seems to not work with ANYTHING from DirectX. Has anyone else got this problem? Thanks in advance.

I downloaded the 2005 Express Edition Beta 2 and couldn't figure out how in the hell you used it, so stuck with 6.0. I'm assuming since it's free it was a severely cut down version?

It's free because its a BETA, ie - not the full software yet. Also, you have to activate it or something after 30 days, iirc

Ah thank you. Explains why I couldn't do squat with it... I thought it was a fully functional beta.

DX is no longer compatible supported with VC++ 6.0. The last compatible version of DX came out last year.

He should have said it's not supported. You might get it to work, but there are certain things which aren't designed to work specifically with VC6

It is fully functional, and you do not need to activate it after 30 days. It will run out when the full version is available for purchase. It is however indeed a BETA which means there are bugs in there.

The beta was free...IIRC the production version will cost about $50-$75. For single developer projects, it has all of the stuff you really need. The more expensive versions of Visual Studio really aim towards project management, as well some more enterprise-based applications. If you are just doing D3D stuff, it should be all you need.
