Just look around MS''s website. You''ll find smaller versions to suit your needs.

i also want to download the d8 sdk but 2 files that i need are 45mb + 55mb. its impossible for me to download even 45mb in one sitting + the microsoft server does not support resuming. anyone know of a mirror for these files that supports resuming, or alternativly where they''ve been broken down into even smaller pieces ±10mb

Yeah, that''s a real pain. Why can''t all files compress into a few kilobytes?


If you had argued and head bashed extensively in the MP3 Beating Compression thread of 1999 you would know.



Just because you''re outnumbered doesn''t mean you''re wrong.

Just a reminder. Microsoft had the headers,libraries and help files for directX 7 available.And it was a 6MB download. It was reasonable enough to assume that it will do the same for DirectX 8(but microsoft doesn''t show any reason...)And that''s basically everything you need to program(can anyone provide these??)

You need to use download recovery software like:

There are several downloaders capable of this.

So when your connection gets broken after only 10 M, you can restart and pick up where you left off instead of starting over.

I realize you don't want to download the 135 meg file. But I wanted to point out that there is alot you do not get with the smaller versions of the package. The demos and documents which take up most of that space are imperative if you actualy want to learn how to use direct x. My suggestion would be to get a program like getright and download the HUGE file in parts until you have the entire thing it may take a week or so but at least you won't be completly lost when using it.

the problem is getright doesnt work for the dx8 files. ie the ms sever doesnt support resuming. a cd is a bit to much cash for me as well. i was only wanting dx8 to do some benchmarking with it

i left my computer on overnight and downloaded it
FYI all you need is the 45mb file. it contains the documentation as well
