Hey - does anyone know how to create a .exe file with Visual C++ express? Thanks.

Yes, I know how to do it. Read this. to get started.

Um, alright - that wasn't exactly what i was looking for but it was definitely more helpful than what I was looking for. I installed the DirectX SDK and DarkGDK, but when I tried to make a new project my OS crashed because of some problem with a driver. This is what the Microsoft error page told me:

Was this just a random problem, or did it occur because of the GDK or Visual C++?

>>Um, alright - that wasn't exactly what i was looking for
Then you need to be more specific about what you want. I can't read your mind.

I never used DirectX or DarkX SDKs, so can't help you. What version of VC++ are you using and what version of Windows ?
