I have DirectX 8.1 installed. The following code compiles but I get ''Unresolved external symbol _IID_DirectDraw7'' error from linker. //code DirectDrawCreateEx(0, (void**)&lpdd, IID_DirectDraw7, 0); //end of code Why is that? I have added ddraw.lib to project. May be the reason is that I have DirectX 8.1 on my computer not DirectX 7?
