    Unhappy How do I get the PSDK working for VC++ 8.0 b2?

    Code:
    Step 3. Update the the Visual C++ Directories in the Projects and Solutions section in the Options dialog box. 
    In that section, you'll want to add the paths to the appropriate subsection:
    
    Executable files - C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\Bin 
    Include files - C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\include 
    Library files - C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\lib
    
    Note:  For Beta 2, you cannot set the Visual C++ Directories in the Options dialog of Visual C++ Express Edition. To work around this issue, you can update the Visual C++ Directories by modifying the VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config file located in the \vc\vcpackages subdirectory of the Visual C++ Express Edition install location. Please make sure that you also delete the file "vccomponents.dat" located in the "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VCExpress\8.0" if it exists before restarting Visual C++ Express Edition.
    Just tell that to some some random guy. Since I have beta 2, I open the VCProjectEngine.dll.express.config file. I get the following:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <VCPlatformConfigurationFile 
    	Version="8.00"
    	>
        <Platform 
    		Name="VCProjectEngine.dll" 
    		Identifier="Win32"
    		>
    		<Directories 
    			Include="$(VCInstallDir)include;$(VCInstallDir)PlatformSDK\include;$(FrameworkSDKDir)include", "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\include"
    			Library="$(VCInstallDir)lib;$(VCInstallDir)PlatformSDK\lib;$(FrameworkSDKDir)lib;$(VSInstallDir);$(VSInstallDir)lib", "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\lib"
    			Path="$(VCInstallDir)bin;$(VCInstallDir)PlatformSDK\bin;$(VSInstallDir)Common7\Tools\bin;$(VSInstallDir)Common7\tools;$(VSInstallDir)Common7\ide;$(ProgramFiles)\HTML Help Workshop;$(FrameworkSDKDir)bin;$(FrameworkDir)$(FrameworkVersion);$(VSInstallDir);$(PATH)", "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\Bin"
    			Reference="$(FrameworkDir)$(FrameworkVersion)"
    			Source="$(VCInstallDir)crt\src"
    		/>
        </Platform>
    </VCPlatformConfigurationFile>
    How am I suppose to update this? Where does my executable path go? Where does anything go? These directions are horrible. Is the path suppose to look like this: "...", "..."? Ontop of this discussion, do I dare ask how to put DirectX SDK on this?

    Code:
    Please make sure that you also delete the file "vccomponents.dat" located in the "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VCExpress\8.0" if it exists before restarting Visual C++ Express Edition.
    Okay... and how can I access this path?

    Thanks in advanced.

    You know, you could actually contribute by saying what the solution was once in a while, instead of editing all your posts down to "works for me".
    Try giving back once in a while instead of just taking.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
