Default DX9 Install SDK


For those of you that have installed the DirextX9 SDK, you might notice when trying to use the tutorial or create a new project from scratch, your missing something.. Microsoft.DirectX.Dll (and all of its neighbors)

What happened, from as far as I can tell, Microsoft forgot one important CAB file in the install (although it exists in the source directory), DXNT.CAB

After you install the SDK, if you get the error for the missing DLL when creating a proejct using the wizard, you will need to find the directory:

C:\XPPRO\Microsoft.NET\Managed DirectX\v4.09.00.0900
OR
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Managed DirectX\v4.09.00.0900

Depending on your system install.

Then extract the contents of the DXNT.CAB into that folder.

In your visual studio project, in references, add all the Microsoft.DirectX.*
Now you can use the Direct X in your project.

NOTE:
C:\DXSDK\SDKDev\Debug\dxnt.cab

Use the one in DEBUG for the DLL's, if you use the one in Retail distrabution, you will NOT have the microsoft.directx DLL's.

Hope this helps.

I tried,... but it didn't help.

I've found the folder you were talking about and i've extracted the dxnt.cab out of the debug-folder...
now in C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Managed DirectX\v4.09.00.0900 i've a lot of stuff, including the microsoft.directx.dll and the microsoft.directX.direct3D.dll etc.
But still nothing appears in that stupid references-list



does anybody know what to do?

Yeah, thanks man!

But aren't the files you described the same as the ones in the dxnt.cab?

In your windows application you have to Right Click the word references, then under the .NET tab click the Browse button, from there browse to the C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Managed DirectX\v4.09.00.0900
folder, once there locate all the microsoft.directx.* (dll's), add them to your project that way. They don't seem to fall under the .Net tab by themself.

The reason for extracting them into the v4.09.00.0900 folder is because some 2002 releases recognize it while others don't seems to be a bug.

But technically you could just create a c:\mydll folder and extract it all there and just browse to it there and install.

When users install the framework they have the same directory structure as you do, so its easier to put them where they should technically be.
