Where can I dl the DirectX 8.1 SDK??

Hi all,

Trying to get started on DirectX, I want to know where can I download the SDK for DX8.1. It appears to be that Microsoft is not providing this SDK now, and instead they offer the DirectX 9 SDK. The problem is that I am planning to develop my DirectX application using Visual C++ 6 or Visual Basic 6, and as far as I know the DirectX 9 is for Visual Studio .NET. Would it be possible to use DirectX 9 with Visual Basic 6 and/or Visual C++ 6?? Where can I find the DirectX 8.1 SDK then?? Thanks a lot...John

    I've used DirectX 9.0 with VC++ 6.0 and I didn't have any problems. I have no idea about VB 6.0, but I imagine it should work with DX 9 too. If you insist on having the 8.1 SDK though I think you could still find it at www.download.com.
