I'm trying to use D3DX11CompileFromFile, but VC++ Express won't find D3DX11async.h. How can that be corrected?

Other header files are found fine, like windows.h, D3D11.h, DXGI.h, and D3DCommon.h, but not D3DX11async.h. I have even used these header files to draw a single-color window, but when it gets to D3DX11async.h it won't find it. I'm using Visual C++ 2010 Express and Windows 7.

[edit]

Additionally, there doesn't seem to be D3DX11async.h on my computer. Why would I not have this file when MSDN says that's where D3DX11CompileFromFile is declared? Edited by Discalibrator

It's in the Include folder of the DirectX SDK install directory. Did you install the DirectX SDK?
