    Cannot find GraphEdit

    Hello,

    DirectShow provides the application GraphEdit (graphedt.exe) with DirectX SDK. Now I have installed DirectX SDK. Neither in the "October 2005" nor in the 2December 2005" release I may find this application.

    Ok, I can download it separately from the internet. My question is: Has Microsoft removed this application from the DirectX SDK? I've installed the Platform SDK. In this SDK I have found this application.

    Thanks in advance for any tips or help,
    lauviss

    Graphedit comes with DirectShow. DirectShow is no longer part of DirectX, it is now part of the Platform SDK.

    Thanks for the answer.

    Now my next one: I've installed Visual C++.net 2003 Standard (with the included Platform SDK) already. Should I reinstall the new PSDK again, or only the DirectShow parts (and how)?

    Thanks in advance,
    lauviss

    It's never a bad idea to install the newest platform sdk. As far as I know, there is no way to only install parts of the platform SDK anyways.

    Again, thank you very much.

    How may I install the PSDK? How do I overwrite the PSDK included with Visual C++.net 2003 Standard? I cannot find a directory named "Platform SDK" or so. Well, I'm a newbie on this topic, too.

    Bye,

    You dont overwrite the SDK that comes with the compiler. When you install the new SDK, it will be installed to c:\program files\microsoft SDK\ (or something close to that). Then in your compiler settings, you add new include and library directories. These directories are c:\program files\microsoft SDK\include and c:\program files\microsoft SDK\lib.

    Ok, I've followed your steps and everything works fine.

    My next (and hopefully last) question: How do I read the documentation of the newly installed PSDK? Does there exist a special program to read the documentation in the "help" directory? Or should I include/link it somehow?

    Thanks again,
    lauviss

    Ooops, sorry. After searching in this forum I've found the solution: I have to take a look in my "Start" menu.

    Thanks and bye,
