Help with DirectX!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi, after 8 hours downloading the DirectX SDK and several more hours clearing some space on my hard drive I finally have DX installed. Now, after all of this I can''t get any of the samples to run. I keep getting the linker error "invalid file or disk full". My hard drive has 60 MB left, is that enough? If I have room on my drive then according ot the error message the file must be invalid, but I just installed DX, so how could anything be wrong with the files? By the way, the file is d3dxof.lib and I''ve also had it happen with ddraw.lib I have MSVC++ 5.0 and I downloaded the full SDK. I installed the headers and libraries, the C++ sample code, the C++ documentation, & the DX Utilities. In Visual C++ I added the DX lib & include directories to the directories tab of the options dialog and under link on the project settings I added the appropriate files. If anyone can tell me what I''m doing wrong or what else I need to download I''d really appreciate it.

Well your running on a bloated OS called windows, which isnt the best in the memory usage area. That 60mb you have left is probally being used by windows for virtual ram......

Thus the errors.
