I'm using Visual Studio 6 SP4, will get SP6 but need to wait. Anyway, when I compile and link the samples supplied with the Freeware version of DGSDK, I get the following errors:

I'm using DirectX SDK v9.0c. Does anybody know why this is and how to rectify the problem.

yes - I had that problem with VS 6

You need SP 5, and if I remember correctly you need a modify set of DX DLL's and to make sure the DirectX & DarkSDK headers & libaries are first.

The modified lib's are availiable from Microsoft - IanM has made a post detailing where from.

Yeah, I ensured that DX headers and libraries were first, then DGSDK's files in that order, although yes, I've not yet updated the SP for VS6. But even so, surely the SP4 to SP6 update, would this make a difference. I'll swap the locations around to see if this is a problem. Looks like I'll have to wait until I can get ahold of SP6. The thing's 60MB so I'll need a BB connection to get this.

Thanks TCA.

Paul.

Have you get the extra set of DX libraries ? You do need them (they are part of the problem)

TCA, Which thread was the link that IanM posted at, It doesn't seem that I have the extra libraries, could you give me a quick helper?

Unfortunately he didn't provide a link, just said :

The rest of the answer ...

Install the extras pack, then add the lib directory to the list of directories to locate lib files (Menu options Tools->Options, select tab 'Directories', select 'lib' from the 'Show Directories for' dropdown box, click the 'new' icon and add the directory. Make sure that this directory is first in the list)

Try here : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=d6f237de-a6ee-4ded-8bb6-139536162eb8&displaylang=en

It sounds about right. Unfortunately only Ian can confirm it...

Ok, I've posted an email to Mike, but I've now installed SP6 for Visual Studio 6, and the DX (October 2004) extras, also adjusting the Library paths to point to the new added (Extras\Visual Stu... folder) location, and the problem still exists.

... See what Mike says.

No, don't adjust the existing path, add a new path.

Not all of the .lib files are in the extras pack, so you still need the others. Just make sure that your new path is ahead of the existing one and you'll be fine.

Ian, I have.

This is the lib path list as it stands:

Crogram FilesThe Game CreatorsDark Game SDK - FREEWARE EditionLibVS6
Crogram FilesMicrosoft DirectX 9.0 SDK (October 2004)Lib
CROGRAM FILESMICROSOFT DIRECTX 9.0 SDK (OCTOBER 2004)EXTRASD3DX9 VISUAL STUDIO 6

Then the standard paths for VC98.

And the problem still exists.

[EDIT] Visual Studio 6 SP6 is installed, and Windows 2000 SP4.

Switch the order of the last two, and you should have it - you need the extra VC++6 libs to be picked up before the standard DX SDK libs

Ummmm. You don´t think this error thing is contagous do you?. Only my VS2003 is reporting aparent errors now when it didn´t before. I think I´ll quorentine it to protect other forum members.

I have never installed any of the service packs and I can compile with no errors. Of cource I got the latest SDK(DX9c) and the extras(D3dx9 etc)...

The only question I have is why does VC6 have to build a lib file along with the .exe.....

I still like VC 4.0 .........

No idea - You could probably stop it though.

Lance, a standard win32 EXE doesn't appear to build a lib but I think because of the SDK comprising of linked static lib files, the resulting app lib contains the functions that are only used by the application when all the other libs are pulled in. Presumably also if your app has exports, but I'm not really clear on this though.
