Won''t work - you''d also need the DLLs, runtime switchers, utility .exes etc...

IIRC there is a version of the SDK available which doesn''t have the sample programs (which are pretty important IMO though). Also MS used to sell the complete SDK on CD for about $6.

Dont be silly! I downloaded the SDK and I''m on 56K (actually, I only log on at 26,600!!!!), it took 3 days to download the 8.0 SDK, and to my extreme suprise, 8.1 came out 3 days later. Then, 3 days after that, I had 8.1! Anyways, to get to the point, find a friend with a cable modem and a CD burner, thats what I did when I corrupted my 8.1 SDK about a week after that second long D/L, now I have a backup on CD, too!!

Good luck to ya!
