Or, maybe, he/she found the proper .dll files within the DirectX SDK package for use in development of C++ programming.

Might have rewritten the setup parameters to force Win.7 to accept its installation and registration within its own registry.

He/She wanted to use hard code programming software called 'Programming in C++'. It is, still, widely sold in College bookstores and, quite, obligatory for most of his/her's courses of study(Teacher's fault, mostly).

Good Work, friend. Wink

While I've seen DEV C++ work the really old Visual C++ was very hard to install and get working on 64 bit windows. Let's just say no.

Link about DEV C++

I offer nothing but that it does work on Vista 64 and Windows 7 64. It might tax a newbie but it does work.

PS. Why not the free Visual C++ Express? Link to it.
