I had two issues not discussed in the lecture:
- Installing DirectX SDK ended in an error - I had to uninstall previous VC++ 2010 Runtimes (both x86 and x64) and then it succeeded
- After resolving include and lib paths, I was getting C1001 internal compiler error. I tried updating VS but that didn’t work. The solution was to change the Platform Toolset to Visual Studio 2015 (V140)
After that, I got the example to compile and run.
