DirectX SDK Samples

This repo contains Direct3D 11, XInput, and XAudio2 samples that originally shipped in the legacy DirectX SDK. These are all Windows desktop applications for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or later.

They have all been cleaned up to build using the Windows 10 SDK, and DO NOT require the DirectX SDK to build. Projects for Visual Studio 2019 are provided, and can be upgraded to VS 2022.

The remainder of the legacy DirectX SDK samples for Direct3D 10, Direct3D 9, etc. can be found directx-sdk-legacy-samples. These make use of the Microsoft.DXSDK.D3DX NuGet so also DO NOT require the legacy DirectX SDK to build.
