Default Visual Basic 6 and DirectX

The myth on the web is that you can not use VB6 to program DirectX. But that is a huge lie. After coming back to VB6 to work on some old projects that used DirectX I searched far and wide for a solution.

But the answer is very simple and would work for anyone. The above article describes the registering and downloading of dx8vb.dll on 32bit and 64Bit systems. Also the vanished SDK DX8SDK8.1_Full version is also available at the above link.

You probably only need the Type Library found in dx8vb.dll to start making use of it. The SDK may be useful in explaining through source code and sample applications the way to program DirectX in the Visual Studio 6 IDE.

Myth Busted!
