Direct X SDK Download Location (Other Than Microsoft)

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me please? I need somewhere that I can download the Direct X SDK that supports resuming (and MSDN doesn''t support it, atleast not with Download Accelerator Plus, so if anyone has a different program that will support resuming from there, that would help aswell). Thanks.

Anyone? Please help me.

(By the way, MSDN doesn''t support resuming even with GetRight and the reason I need resuming is because I only have a 56k modem and I either need to pause it and reconnect every 4 hours or finish downloading it in 4 hours which would be impossible seeing it is over 100mb.)

Give me about half an hour and I'll post it on my server at work.
Dunno if that's legal, so I'll have to take it back down when you get through. Just email me when it's done.

I Downloaded the DX8.1 SDK using download accelerator plus. I didn''t go to the MSDN site however.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/search.asp?
@the search box type "8.1" and download the appropriate version. (C++,VB,Full) It work fine for me with DAP, and i''m on 56k. (DAP also said resume was supported)

Good Luck.

THANKS!!!!

That works great. It''s the same link as from MSDN except this time I made it so it didn''t search for a mirrored file, which is why it said it wouldn''t resume the other time. Thanks again.

Also, to DracosX, you can take it off your site now. Thanks anyway.

I posted a comment to Microsoft from their web page about my 56K modem and the trouble I was having downloading the SDK. I asked if there was any way for me to order a CD, gave them all my information (name, address, phone number, e-mail, etc.) and to my surprise, a DirectX 8.1 SDK CD ROM arrived in the mail a few days later. They didn''t give a reason why they mailed it to me maybe it was Christmas spirit (my e-mail was on Dec 21), but they didn''t even charge me the usual $10 for shipping. I got an e-mail a few days later about the CD being mailed because Microsoft wasn''t distributing the SDK on CD at this time. (?!?)

Hey, sorry about that, I shoulda checked the file permissions before I went to bed, but it was late.

I'll fix it, even though you already got a link, you might be able to pull it off our server a bit faster
