Installing the MS Platform SDK

Recommended Posts

hi, i have downloaded the Microsoft Platform SDK (approx. 250 MB, when installed over 500 MB). there is a problem: the installer installed the complete directory in a seperate directory, not placed the files correctly in my MSVC++ 6.0 directory. now i have to move the files manually, which is a lot of work since there are trillions of directorys... is there another way to do it? thanks gammastrahler

VC++ opens the MSDN documentation that comes with it when you press F1. I am not aware of any way to have it open the Platform SDK documentation with F1.

_johan: You can change that, but it''s quite tedious and error-prone. I wish the PSDK installer would have an MSDN integration/replacement option.

This might be a dumb question but I thought the the documentation was supposed to open when you press F1 in msvc? Well for me, it doesnt...

Did you install the documentation?

On another note: You should really start your own topic when your question has nothing to do with the original posters question.

Edit: Ok, I assumed you meant that you didn't get any documentation at all when you pressed F1 (i.e. not even the MSVC docs), though I realise now that you were probably refering to the PSDK docs... in any case, just ignore me if my assumption was incorrect .
