View Full Version : DX8 SDK and DX9 Runtime? *Solved*
Becuase of my little bit old Graphics card I am still programming in DX8.1. I have the SDK installed. But is it possible for me to install the DX9 Run time library without screew up any of my development? I guess it should work well since it is 100% backward compatible.
I think it should work okay, but why not just install the DX9 SDK? All the interfaces for DX8 coding are still there, AFAIK. Heck, you could even just fully move to the DX9 interfaces, if you want, while using a DX8-level feature-set.
Are you sure that all the functions for the classes will come up when I write the name of a DX8 object? I am also using VBm becuase I am still writing some tutorials for VB. And I don't have VB.NET. Neither do I have Vc++.NET. Only VS6. I know I can use DX9 in VC++6 but I don't think that I can use DX9 for VB6. So that is why I havn't downloaded the DX9 SDK.
Ah. . . Well, I'm not sure about VB. :( All my stuff is in C++.
Yeah I am prgramming in C++ now too. But I like to help out new programmers as best as I can, so since I have 7 years of VB programming behind me, I still like to keep it on my computer, and to use it for level editors, and writing beginners tutorials. But I downloaded the DX9b run time library and all my stuff still works so I guess this topic is solved. Thanks to you....
