I was going to do some game programming so I googled for tutorials and all of the tutorials I've seen require DirectX SDK. The tutorial also saids that the SDK has to be developer's version not runtime.So I surfed onto microsoft.com and found nothing about developer's version but runtime. So, I download a about 200MB installer called DirectX 9.0b SDK. When I install the SDK, it ask me to choose Debug or Retail, so I was confused too. So where to download developer's version and should I choose Debug or Retail to install?
By the way, the tutorial I was looking at is:http://www3.telus.net/alexander_russell/course_dx/introduction_dx.htm
