1) What is the latest version of DirectX SDK?

2) For my purposes I need DirectX 9.0c SDK and DirectX 11 SDK. Do I need to install these libraries separately or last DirectX SDK package contains both of versions?

The latest SDK version, as of this writing, is the June 2010 SDK. It contains what you'd need to build against both 9.0c and 11.

In fact with the latest microsoft ide's, the old 9c sdk wont even work with the compiler, so get the newest. – user17618 Jul 2 '12 at 4:42
Note that the DX SDK has been rolled into the Windows SDK. – David Lively Jul 2 '12 at 16:40
