Hey guys, I was having problems getting Visual Studio 2005 to recognize my d3d files. I downloaded the latest SDK from Microsoft and ran the installer. Is there something else that I should be doing? I have not found any helpful places to help me get this installed so that I can include the headers and libraries into my program. Any tips would be appreciated. Chris

You probably need to set your linker/include paths in your project settings.

The IDE doesn't automagically realize that you've installed the SDK, it needs to be told on a per-project basis.

The only problem is that I can't find the files to include into the project. I have no idea what the installer actually did.

Unless you specified otherwise, they're probably under your root drive, inside the Program Files folder, in a folder names something like "Microsoft DirectX SDK" or somesuch.
