I havebeen using wxdev c++ but have problems when compiling directx code even though I have installed devpaks for DX9 anyway i think the best thing is for me to get a real compiler not freeware. Are there any good compilers that have gui design tools that will compile directx and be inexpensive? I directx 9 book i ahve mentioned visual c++ 6.0 or visual c++.net they might be cheaper because they are a few years old

Two probelms with that , no gui design tolls, and once you download , to install you have to be online
for me that means 6 hours (dialup) If i asked on the msdn forum about a cd and even a blog for visual c++ 2008 and no answers.

PM your address and I'll mail you a copy of the dvd (yes its a legal copy, I download the ISO fle and made my own dvd).

Wouldn't it be faster even with dialup to download and burn the ISO instead of waiting for the US Snail?

I wasn't aware *compilers* had gui design tools?, I thought compilers were just to convert human readable source code to machine read able code?

Yes, but apparently he has a very sloooow dial up computer and downloading that huge file coule be quite costly.

So, what's it like for you working in the stone ages :twisted:

Thanks for the offer Ancient D, it would not be costly at all except tying up the phone for about 6 hours. I want to try an download it first at a library with super fast
DSL then i can just burn a copy of it if it does not work i will take you up on your offer

Acesofspades: even the free compiler i was using had gui design tools that worked like a wysiwyg
