Hi Folks,

This may sound very noob question but am really not aware about this one. Lets say, I make a small game using DirectX SDK & later try to sell it commercially, do I have to pay Microsoft any royalties? Making demo for educational purpose using SDK is fine but am not aware about going commercial with it?

Please enlighten me with any info possible. [:)]

Thanks.

You're fine as long as you use the official Microsoft DX Redistributable package to install the runtime DLL's. If you want you can launch it from your game's installer in silent mode so that the user doesn't even have to know about it.
