Installation Notes

The following are in addition to the notes and requirements included in the book.
  1. If you run into a S1023 error when installing the DirectX SDK (June 2010) then you need to uninstall the Visual C++ Redistributables and attempt to install the SDK. For more information see "S1023" error when you install the DirectX SDK (June 2010).

JFYI, if you are on Win10 with VS2015, you may have a look at the Issue Tracker.

There are some patches to build against Windows SDK rather than DirectX SDK.
