I am now plannng to write a network program using DirectPlay. I had been a Visual C++ programmer and I have some understanding on VB. It seems that VB is more easy to create such an application with DirectX 7. But I would like to know some more things before I go ahead.
1) Is there any performance lost or some other issues that I need to pay attention when using VB?
2) DirectX is COM based. It is natural to let VB to use it through Automation, right? Why Microsoft provide VB SDK only for DirectX 7?
Thank you for your attention
