Hi all. I am new and I have been reading up on C++ and I need to know which version of Directx should I learn. I have Directx 8 SDK but I have not used it yet. It seems that it is missing Directdraw I guess, is that bad? If I have no prior experiencewhich should I learn? Directx 7, 8 or both? If you recommend 7 please tell me where I can get it. Thank you.

You can still use the DirectX 7 interfaces with the DirectX 8 SDK if you want. You can also download the DirectX7 SDK from the archives at Microsoft.
