when i extract the file it looks like i got all the lib and incs that i need, but im not sure if that is the sdk is installed at that point, beucase it has none of the examples or extra utilities... and i get crashes when i try to do new direct x stuff anytime i try to use (and of course when i "installed" the sdk i didnt ask me if i wanted the debug version, so i dont know why im getting these errors... i then ran a setup which installed (i know for sure) the sdk, but then it said it was 8.0 (not 8.1), and still didnt ask me if i wanted to install the debug verson... i dont know maybe i just need a newer version on direct x but when i tried to run the dxinstall sample program it said i was missing Dsetup.dll (so i couldnt see if a newer verson of dx was avalible other than what i had). well needless to say, i just uninstalled the whole d@mn sdk, and am looking to start over. (i know how to link the paths in the compilier so no need to help there). anyone who knows howto do this (especially with the set up of the specail effects game programming cd verson) please reply. no need to flame me for this, i already feel like a big tool getting cuaght up on something this stupid...
