get a new C++ compiler. VC++ 6.0 is just bleh.

You can upgrade to 2005, use Dev C++, MinGW developer studio, or Code::Blocks for free.

6.0 should be compatible if you just configure your compiler, and its currently at 9.0c but soon 10 when Vista ever comes out.

Look at Wikipedia - DirectX: Scroll down and you will see all the releases and dates of DirectX

It should work if set up correctly. However, you shouldn't really be using VC++6; you can upgrade to Visual Studio 2005 Express for free.

You can get the latest DirectX SDK from Microsoft.

Yes, I did essentially just repeat the information given by the above posters, but I wanted to emphasise that you should upgrade from VC++6 unless you've got some good reason for staying with it; that being said, yes you should be able to use it if you really want to do so.

You can use directx 9 with vb6 as I am using it without anyproblem too...
I know its a lot outdated but thats the way my college wants me to go..

I thought DX 9 was not compatible with VB 6. How are you doing it?

I also thought VC++ wasn't compatible with DX 9 after the summer/fall '04 DX 9 release. Guys how are you getting it to work?
