Hi,

What software do I need in order to build Directx 10 based applications

Can I use free version of Visual C++ Express 2005

Thanks

VS Express should do just fine, all you need is the DirectX SDK. The June 2006 release supports Vista Beta 2. You set up the project much like you would for previous versions of DirectX.

  1. Make sure to include the directories for the DX headers (/inc) and libs (/lib) in your VS Directories under Tools->Options.
  2. In your project settings add d3d10.lib and d3dx10.lib in the Input field under Linker.
  3. Include d3d10.h and d3dx10.h in your source code.

Thanks,

I am running public Vista

I've installed VS C++ Express with DirectX SDK June 2006.

I am trying to build Tutorial00 and I get this error message

fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'windows.h': No such file or directory

Does this mean I need to download and install platform SDK Also is there a special platform SDK for Windows Vista

Yes, you probably need to download the Windows SDK.
