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

Most software needed for development is either in \\alexandria\share\software or in the MSDN Library CDs (in a binder, usually in the server room)

  • Install Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional
  • Install the Platform SDK (from alexandria)
  • Install DirectX 9.0 SDK Update (Summer 2003)
  • 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.
