    Error: cannot open source file "d3dx9.h"?

    I am obviously new to hacking and C++, so please don't flame me and tell me to learn C++ before doing any of this. I am currently reading the sections on LearnCPP.

    My question is why every time I try to include d3dx9.h it says "Error: cannot open source file 'd3dx9.h'"? I am using Redux's Hotkey base.

    This hack won't be released so again please don't call me a noob or anything for not making my own base. I don't know enough about Combat Arms hacks or C++ to do that yet. This is just for testing purposes.

    @LostInTheDark If you have made a new project (and not used the solution Redux made), you need to include the DirectX SDK. (If you don't have it, you need to download and install it first).

    I got Visual 2010 so if you have another version, it might be slightly different but should probably be about the same.

    *Click project, then your projects properties. Choose configuration properties, then VC++ Directories
    *On include directories, you need to add a new directory. On my machine it's something like c:\program files x86\Microsoft DirectX SDK June 2010\include
    *On library directories, add the same path but Microsoft DirectX SDK\lib instead

    Now it should compile properly.

    @ctpsolo Thank you very much! I hadn't realized I needed something other than C++ itself.

    Generally when one wants to use an external library they want to be in possession of said external library.

    Oh no! Vortex is gay!
