Basic DirectX8 'shell' for Windows Programming
Its been a long time, but I am getting back into windows programming.
I was wondering if anybody knows of a basic shell for getting started?
The sort of thing I am looking for is just a simple window app with the standard menus and dialogs that initialises a DX8 app ready to render stuff. Registry registration & install/uninstall wizard is something I am interested in too.
Once I have a basic 'shell' I plan to archive and use it as the 'starting blocks' for my apps.
I'm using Visual Studio 6, under XP pro.
