    If you mean installing the SDK:

    Just run the install.exe and it will make a new directory w/sub-directories that have all the source examples, header/library files, help file, etc..

    If you mean setting up a project for DirectX:

    Depending on your compiler, you have to add the paths for the SDK library/include file directories, you have to link to the appropriate library files (depends on what section of DX you're using) and you have to make sure you include the proper header files.

    Yes, to an extent.

    Depends on what you wanna use. I prefer msvc++ though.


    also do u have any examples of a dx code?

    The SDK is loaded with examples of DX code. Also check out sunlight's site and gamedev's DX articles/tutorials.

    Thank you, I take that as a compliment coming from you....I've been working on a few games.

    Then look around the forums before asking the same question everyone else has asked a few zillion times.

    oh and 3 post per day!?? whats the matter i remeber your good days 10 posts/day what happend to them?
    As already stated, I've been working on a few games. Also, I've been trying to do some other stuff.

    This worthless conversation is brought to you by pode and Quantrizi. If you wish to flame me for this post, go right ahead.
