    Question Reference problems (DirectX)

    Hi there!

    I've got to go into DirectX programming, and I decided to use Visual Studio 2003 along with the DirectX SDK to do it.
    However I ran into a problem with the installation. To use the directX features I have to add it as a reference (and also include the "using" in the code) to my project, but the Microsoft.DirectX references aren't on the list! Usually this is because of some problem in the installation, so here's how I did it:

    1. I installed Visual Studio 2003 along with .NET framework (and fixes, and SP1).
    2. I installed DirectX 9.0 SDK (it's good enough for me).

    I've restarted the PC between the installations, and after the installation.
    When I wish to add the reference to my projects, I simply don't see the Microsoft.DirectX.<stuff> on the list. What did I do wrong? What directories do I have to add to the project's include folders?

    Please help. I managed to get it work on my old PC (I just got some new stuff, and needed a reinstall), but I forgot how...

    Thx again in advance,
    Han

    One more thing. I checked the c:\windows\assembly folder, and the Microsoft.DirectX stuff are there... Still when I click "Add reference" in my project in VC2003, they do not appear! (And as I read in another thread, I also don't have the DLLs in my c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET library.)

    How weird is that? I installed the DX 10 SDK, and everything works.
    So thread is pointless now.
