My project cannot build because it is missing dxerr.lib. This used to ship with the DirectX SDK, but wasn't included in the Windows 8 SDK. It is now available as part of DXUT (released by Microsoft). Would it be possible to add this?

It is available here: https://dxut.codeplex.com/

    Download there https://dxut.codeplex.com/releases/view/125686?RateReview=true is just a zip containing few VS solutions. What are we supposed to do with that zip?

    It may be simpler to just add the legacy DX SDK. While large, it contains everything necessary to build most DirectX applications that haven't transitioned to the Windows 8.x SDK.

    DirectX SDK has been installed into C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK

    Adding the DirectX SDK solves my issue. Thanks!
