I have Visual Studio 2013 installed on my machine, and I have installed the latest DirectX SDK, but it doesn't seem to have added any DirectX project templates to VS. Should it have? Or do I need to get them separately?

There is an empty directx project in the sdk which sets you up the device and swapchain, you will just need to start coding. ;) – János Turánszki Feb 28 '14 at 16:04

No, it is not supposed to add any templates for you. You have to manual link to wards the include and library folder.

You may want to check out Direct3D Win32 Game Visual Studio template. – Chuck Walbourn Jan 6 '15 at 21:01

It doesnt include it for you, it's your job to point where it is located. Also note if you are using Windows 8 SDK or Windows 8.1 SDK, it includes already DirectX SDK as you can see here.
