If downloading it doesn''t appeal to you, you can also get it by buying a game programming book such as "OpenGL Game Programming", "Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus" or other DirectX programming books. They put a copy on the included CD. The first book has version 8 and the second has 6.1.

Just so you know, I own both books and don''t own any stock in any of the publishers.

You can get it at my site as well. I have it all zipped up and stretched out in bite size pieces for those with slow modems.

Someone else was offering to sell it on CD for $5. I can do that well but for $5.50 and can include as much other stuff as you want from my site up to 650MB for the price.
