After a long hiatus from development (last used VB 4) I bought the DarkGame Studio for a new side project. It appears that the DarkGDK is the current preferred tool.

I have Windows 7 - 64-bit. I have installed the 2008 C++ express and the DirectX 9 2007. Then installed the DarkGDK from the CD. The wizards do not show up. I can delete all and start over. What is the preferred method for a fresh install? I don't care if it's VC++ 2008, 2010, whatever.

I fixed the problem, since this is for a work related project, I am on a work computer that had "My Documents" redirected to the network share. 2008 C++ was smart enough to go to the redirect, DarkGDK was not. I copied all of the directoris to the redirected spot and was fine.

But another question. I have seen so many different posts about installing different versions of visual express (2008 and 2010) probelms with finding different versions of DirectX SDK, etc DarkGDK updates, etc. What is the current preferred installation instruction for a fresh install?
