I hope this is not OT. I just downloaded DX9 December SDK and use Visual Studio 2005 Express. I always have to add the above libraries to the "additional dependencies" part of any sample project (i.e., BasicHLSL_2005.vcproj) or I get loads of linker errors. Existing ones in the "additional dependencies" are: dxerr.lib dxguid.lib d3dx9d.lib d3d9.lib winmm.lib comctl32.lib Is there something wrong with my Visual Studio or windows settings? I have win xp with all updates.

It means that you didn't follow all the instructions for installing the Platform SDK for use with MSVC .NET 2005 Express Edition. You're supposed to change the additional dependencies to "kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.lib advapi32.lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib uuid.lib" in the corewin_express.vsprops file.

Thanks it works. It's surprising this is not automatic.

On a side note, unfortunately in VS 2005, there is no option to launch the application with Debug>Direct3D>Start D3D, because there is no Direct3D tab under debug.

Thus though the project runs and swithes to reference rasterizer, still can't get break point working in .fx files.
