Hey.

I want to use a complete effect file, and from what I read about loading effect files, I need the library Effects11.lib to do this.
Next, I found out, I have to compile this library myself (as stated here: http://msdn.microsof...3(v=vs.85).aspx , Section "Requirements").

So I pay a visit to the DirectX SDK directory ( which is in my case located at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)") and open .\Samples\C++\Effects11\Effects11_2010.sln , as I am using Visual Studio 2010.

Then I just try to compile, but I get a bunch of errors (Should I get errors at all, when compiling Microsoft's Sources???), see the complete output listed below.

While I don't understand these completely, my investigation has shown that I was missing the Windows 7 SDK. Ouch. So I downloaded it, still in the hope these errors might vanish. No luck. Being on a x64 System, I additionaly gave the x64 WINDOWS 7 SDK a try, nothing improved.

So what is it, I'm missing? Can anyone help me here? Or can anyone point me to the compiled library?

Maybe my system information can be helpful here:
IDE: Visual Studio 2010;
OS: Server 2008R2 SP1;

Copy that Effects11 folder to Visual Studio 2010 Project folder or you will need to run VS 2010 will elevated privilege; then try to compile it again and did you set the path to Dx 11 header files in your project?

I finally got it working.
Not quite the way you suggested, but here's how:

I reinstalled the Windows sdk. That is, I first removed all Windows SDK components, then reinstalled it using the x86 package.
Then I opened the Effects11_2010.sln and modified the include and library paths to explicitely provide the Windows SDK path before the DirectX SDK path.

And somehow it worked.
Thanks for your efforts anyway.
