Hello i was wondering where to get the Directx 9 API for my compiler Visual C++ and how to install it. Another question is that Directx 10 will only work Windows Vista? My last question is if i wanted to use both Opengl and Directx (one for 2D and the other for 3d) how would i install it. I read the FAQ but im sorry if i missed anything.

1. DirectX SDK

1b. You might want to consider using the entire Visual Studio IDE (for free) to make things easier on you

2. Yes, D3D10 will only work on Vista

3. Google for OpenGL and follow the installtion instructions. Not to sound snooty, but maybe it's a good idea to get familiar with one API first before delving into crossplatform/dual API projects.
