For some reason I cant add include/lib directories to VC++ Express, I go to Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->VC++ Directories and I see this: Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us Thats all, what dumb thing am I missing.

Here's help, specifically:
Quote:
For Beta 2, you cannot set the Visual C++ Directories in the Options dialog of Visual C++ Express Edition. To work around this issue, you can update the Visual C++ Directories by modifying the VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config file located in the \vc\vcpackages subdirectory of the Visual C++ Express Edition install location. Please make sure that you also delete the file "vccomponents.dat" located in the "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VCExpress\8.0" if it exists before restarting Visual C++ Express Edition.

Yeah, they haven't implemented that yet.

There are two solutions to this:
  1. Go through all the config crap and add them in manually. If you want to do this look it up, just be warned its a huge pain-in-the-ass.
  2. Take your headers/libs and dump 'em into the default directories. Whee! <-- recommended solution


It may seem like a stupid thing to do, but you have to do one or the other. Beyond that, Beta 2 is awesomeness. (I've got the Win32SDK, DXSDK, SDLSDK and more dumped into the default directories lol!)
