How to install DarkGDK

Post  pqowieuryt101 on Wed May 12, 2010 10:59 pm

here are the steps to installing DarkGDK:-

1. okay so first you need to have visual c++ express edition.

download this from - http://www.microsoft.com/express/Downloads/#2010-Visual-CPP

click here to download it -


EDIT - doesn't work with 2010 edition, download 2008 edition here -
http://www.brothersoft.com/visual-c++-65282.html

2. once that's installed, down the august 2007 DirectX SDK from here - http://www.thegamecreators.com/?m=view_product&id=2128&page=download

(it's number 2 in the links)

3. now run visual c++ once before installing DarkGDK

4. use the link above to install DarkGDK which is the final step.

post any questions you have here Smile

hmm you may be right but I used the link on the game creators website and it took me to the 2010 edition download so I just presumed it was fine.

I'll give it a try and check back if it works. I've been really wanting to make the switch to 2010, but wasn't sure if DarkGDK would work with it. If I compile one of the wizards with the 2010 IDE, I'll post the proof.

ok. so after many attempts. it wont compile. it throws lots of linker errors. partly due to the fact that you now have to specify "include" and "library" paths in the project configuration instead of it being readily available in the tools menu ( which is such a bust ). sorry, but i tried, honestly, i did Very Happy
