DirectX SDK Legacy Samples
This repo contains Direct3D 9, Direct3D 10, a few Direct3D 11, and DirectSound samples that originally shipped in the legacy DirectX SDK. These are all Windows desktop applications for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or later.
They have been cleaned up to build using the Windows 10 SDK, and DO NOT require the DirectX SDK to build. They make use of the Microsoft.DXSDK.D3DX NuGet package for the legacy D3DX9/D3DX10/D3DX11 libraries. Projects for Visual Studio 2019 are provided.
The DXUT here supports Direct3D 9 and Direct3D 10. The DXUT11 here supports Direct3D 9 and Direct3D 11. Both have been modified to use a locally built dxerr instead of dxerr.lib. For more information, see this blog post.
For fully cleaned up and modernized versions of DXUT11, Effects11, Direct3D 11 samples/tutorials, and other legacy DirectX SDK samples see DXUT, FX11, and directx-sdk-samples. Those samples do not make use of the legacy D3DX libraries.
