I upgraded from VC6 to VS.NET 2003. How do I get the DGSDK wizard to appear in the list when I create a new project? It was there in VC6.

thanx

As far as I know, there is none.
You would have to create a wizard on your own (and share it with us hehe)
or you can create an empty Win32 project with a main (take the same cpp file that the VS6 wizard creates) as template project.

To create a new project I would create a new folder (with the new solution/project name).
Then, open the template solution and save the solution, the project and the main.cpp in the new folder (select them within the Solution Explorer and choose "save as..." from mainmenu)

Not the best solution to be honest, but I own the VS.NET 2003 (VS7) since three days or so

[EDIT]
Any suggestions for a better solution would be appreciated!

There isn't one for VS7. Look like a real pain to create as well (a mixture of CSS, HTML, Java and various other bits).

May I point you to my website (posted this a while ago).....

One VS.NET 2003 DGSDK wizard

Easy to modify as well. Just change the template c file to whatever you want to be generated...

thanx for the wizard. How can I get it to automatically put the dx and dgsdk include and library paths in the project? Just wondering if it is possible...

I've modified the template slightly so it includes some standard C headers, puts in a version resource and naturises the string table - and put a break instead of return in the escape key checking.

@roujesky

Hm, I think these paths are independent of Solution/project settings.
These are set globally in the "VS7 Paths"-options IIRC.

Bouncy Brick. Any objections to me updating the download on my site with your updated template? (In hindsight, I should have made those changes myself, but it'll save me some work if I just copy yours up there )

Cheers,
Iain

No problem

It may be possible to set these on a project by project basis, but not desirable. It would be better if you set them globally, and then it'll apply to every project (rather than you having to retype the paths every time you create a new project)..
