Default OT: MS C++ 6.0 help

I'm starting to understand c++. However, c++ doesn't understand the Directx SDK samples I downloaded.

Ok. Which examples, from which Version of DirectX, and what is MSVC6 saying to you about them?

This one

The c++ samples.

And it's not recognizing the makefile or the .vcproj file when I try to open a workspace. See you guys monday. (Don't go on the internet sunday...And look at the forum time).

Any newer examples are likely build for MSVC 7, which may not have a compatible Workspace (DSW) format. Try opening the Project file (DSP) or the VCPROJ file directly.

VC7 also uses yet another file type called a "Solution" file (SOL). If there is no SOL file for the example you're looking at, then it probably is an old example which should load in VC6, so I that case something else would be causing the problem.

VC7 solutions are *.sln, not *.sol, BTW...
(insert random plug for C# here )

Do you have the DX SDK installed? Do you have your compiler set up to include the DX stuff at compile time?

Meh, who wants to use C++ when there are easier Languages around? Python, java. I remember when i used to program in c++. Now i can concentrate on ideas instead of language syntax stuff.

Because those Languages create relatively slow programs, thus they are not sufficient when speed is required.

Also, he hasn't said, but it may be something he's doing for school, and even if there are other Languages better the C++, I doubt his teacher would allow substitutions.
