What definitions do you need d3dx9.h for anyway?

I'm using the D3DXSprite, D3DXMATRIX, etc... , if thats what you are asking for? Appearantly, I'd additionally need to tell the linker to link to the d3d9.lib, as well as the d3dx9 and some other libs. Gosh, I hate Windows 8 :/

Well now granted I did, since its OK for now (going to test if this persists on Windows 7 tomorrow) c+p all the include and link stuff from my engine project. I still get some unresolved symbol errors. Well, at least we are partially in the territory of the game project now:

1>LightAttributeCtrl.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: virtual void __thiscall GuiObject::OnKeyStroke(char)" (?OnKeyStroke@GuiObject@@UAEXD@Z)
1>MaterialAttributeCtrl.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: virtual void __thiscall GuiObject::OnKeyStroke(char)" (?OnKeyStroke@GuiObject@@UAEXD@Z)
1>ObjectAttributeCtrl.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "public: virtual void __thiscall GuiObject::OnKeyStroke(char)" (?OnKeyStroke@GuiObject@@UAEXD@Z)

Whereas the function is declared as :

class GuiObject {
...
virtual void OnKeyStroke(TCHAR key);
...
}


and defined as

void GuiObject::OnKeyStroke(TCHAR key)
{
}


I won't post the whole GuiObject.h code since it is really huge and probably contains nothing to help solve the problem. <Windows.h> is included in the header, however, so is GuiObject.h to each of the Controller-classes throwing the error. Some ideas why it could be crashing on this very function? Ouch, silly me, forgot to set the new project to unicode. Hrmpf. Could slap myself for this. Anyway, for now it is working, except this one very annoying need-to-include-stuff-thats-already-included-in-my-engine - thing. Out of interest, how does other engines handle this? Did the windows 8 SKD completely drop the d3dx9-stuff or is there any other way to correctly include it?
