please dont post to this thread as i think it should be in general gpu computing instead of vista.

i have:
8800 gts 512 (G92)
nforce 4 kn8 ultra
vista 32 bit sp1 (and all updates)
nvidia vista 32bot driver 177.26 (it supports cuda)
JUNE 2008 DX runtime (i didnt see a june 2008 DX SDK)

im new to all this but have compiled a few linux kernels (thats about it)

here is what i have installed so far:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition

im not sure what im supposed to do about the DX SDK cause i have JUNE 2008 RUNTIME installed and the only DX SDK i see is from MARCH 2008.

also im not sure if i need anything else installed.

how do i setup Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition?

i am stuck in this “CUDA_SDK_release_notes_windows.txt” at section I, step 4.

could someone make a complete guide to install AND setup Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition so I can focus on actually learning programming instead of installing and setting stuff up?

I and probably others would be greatfull for this.

I know VC9 has to be setup correctly with inc and lib files and paths and i have no idea what i need to do there.

thanks for any help you can offer.

I don’t think Vs2008 is supported yet. Use VS2005 meanwhile :D

oh ok thats not a problem

say i have it installed already.
what is the process of setting it up like i asked above?
thanks again for any help.
