    Angry Direct x 8.1 MSVS C++6 Problems

    I currently use MSVS C++6.0 and I just downloaded DirectXSDK 8.1 and installed it. Then I go to tools: options: directories... to change the location of the include files and the library files to the correct paths. I now get errors on real simple examples when I try to compile source code that used to compile without errors i.e.

    compiling...
    Error spawning cl.exe

    Resistance is futile.exe - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

    Any ideas what I am doing incorrectly?
