yes. Everything is the same except the syntax is a bit different. You can use any language( C, C++, VB, Java, etc).

What language are you using (VB.Net)? Are you using Visual Studio (there are free express editions available)?If you are using VS you just add the reference to the DirectX assemblies (you must install the SDK first). Then you just import the namespaces you need to use.If you are not familar with using class libraries you need to do some review or tutorials.

In the options menu for creating a new solution, is there meant to be a DirectX library thing?
