I remember when reading through my C++ book (which was for Visual C++ 6.0), it said that I need to add the directX SDK to VS by going to tools, options, then some directory stuff. In 2003, when I go to tools, options, there are no tabs, which means no directory. So my question is, do I have to put directX into VS to use it? If so, how? If not, how do I use it? I'm using the directX 9 feb. 2006 SDK.

I can't remember for sure but isn't there an option to create a DirectX application in the project creation wizard?
I think it asks you which DX systems you want to use and sets them all up for you (and it even gives you a bit of code if you ask for it).

I believe that was for VC++ 6. I remember that one DX update create an app wizard for 2003, can't remeber which one though.

AppWizards for DirectX have been gone for a VERY long time [smile]

They got superceded by the "Install Project" link you can find in the SampleBrowser. Finding the "EmptyProject" entry in the SampleBrowser is about as good a starting point as you'd ever get from an AppWizard...

Hey, as far as VS and DX go all you need to do is install the SDK, it will add the needed include paths,libs, and dll's.
At that point you need only #include and DX is wired and good to go....
