Default Errors in SDK Tutorials?


I've just started to work with DX9 in VB.Net (my other posts in this section have been for help on a C++ project), and only the first VB.Net tutorial in the SDK works. Tutorials 2-6 each have errors, including trying to assign a handle to a Device event that doesn't exist, and problems locking the vertex buffer on the lighting tutorial. Have other people had these same problems with the tutorials?

Also, looking at the way that these tutorials achieve things, such as creating the device and vertex buffer, seem strange to me. In your personal projects, do you guys create an event like OnCreateDevice and add that handle to the device like the tutorial does? In my experience with DX8 and VB6 I would just create an InitD3D function that sets up the device and render states and everything and it made much more sense. I still plan on proceeding this way, but I was just wondering how you guys approached it.
