Anyone know where I can find the source for a small program that uses DirectX that I could use to test to see if it installed correctly and all?

Enjoy [smile]

There are of course also samples in the SDK itself ...
Look in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft DirectX SDK (February 2006)\Samples\C++" ...EmptyProject in the Direct3D folder would be the simplest sample in there (probably [wink])

Well it works I guess. I noticed that emptyproject in the Direct3D folder, that it loaded up a whole lot of different other .cpp and .h files in the common folder area.

So, if whenever I get to the point where I need to use DirectX, do I also have to go through the process of loading up all those? Or can I just do like an #include <whatever> to load all that up?

EDIT: do I need to add any directories in VC++ like I had to do with the platform SDK that let me create windows apps?
