Even if you don't plan to develop, just the act of downloading and compiling can uncover problems. If the version you download doesn't build on your platform, file a bug.

Installing windows core development tools and libraries

  • Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional
  • Microsoft Platform SDK
  • DirectX 9.0 SDK Update (Summer 2003)
  • Set up the project globals:
    • Start Visual C++
    • Go to Tools/Options/Projects/VC++ Directories
    • Make sure that the includes and libraries paths have the DirectX SDK paths first, then the Platform SDK paths, and then the Visual C++ paths.
