DirectX SDK Samples Catalog
Microsoft has moved away from providing samples in SDKs for a number of reasons, but primarily to reduce the size of the standalone downloads and to minimize the size of the SDKs when included in other products (such as the Windows 8.x SDK being included with VS 2012 and VS 2013). The MSDN Code Gallery provides an online repository for samples, including both official Microsoft samples as well as community contributions. Here’s a list of the samples from the legacy DirectX SDK (June 2010) and their locations online if available.
The majority of these samples are Win32 desktop applications. Where applicable, the table also notes similar samples for Windows Store apps on Windows 8.x.
