You seem to be pretty impatient little man. As I always say... If you can't install the SDK then get out of the gaming business! (or something like that).

I will help you anyways. Click on setup.exe. Then read the documentation.

Oh, I also forgot. Add the SDK lib and include paths in to your VC++ include and lib directories. But make sure that you move them to the top of the list.

Then read the documentation.

The docs don't help much, I need to get it to work with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0

How do you set the lib path? I lost my manual to Visual C++.

Tools->Options->Directories

Ya I know what you mean, I lost my manuals also. It seems like everyone keeps losing them.

In VC++ 6, go to Tools->Options, Directories Tab. You can set the various directories here, and change which type of directory (include, execution, library, source) with the pull down box titled "Show Directories for:". Just set the directories as needed. Ex: for the DX libs, c:\dxdirectory\lib or something like that.
