Ok i'm working on c just plain c with jonathan S. Harbour's book to beginning game programming. Will i'v come across a problem. Whenever I use dec-c++ there is almost always an error when there is no error there! So I used Microsoft Visual c++ 2005 edition. There is a the d3d9.h file was not in the include list (i'v done everything i'm supposed to I got all the SDK and directx9 downloaded and installed. Also it can't find windows.h either. So i'm looking for a compiler that actually works and its free! If you can help thank you so much in advance.
