error acquiering keyboard

Recommended Posts

First of all I already searched the forum, but didn''t found a solution to my problem. Secondly acquiering of the keyboard worked fine a couple of days ago, with the same code now my problem when I try to acquire the keyboard the first time it fails so I added this code :
  
if FAILED(g_hr = g_lpDIKeyboard->Acquire())
	{
		Write2Log("Acquiring of keyboard failed, trying again") ;
		g_hr = g_lpDIKeyboard->Acquire() ;
		if (FAILED(g_hr)) 
		{
			g_hr = g_lpDIKeyboard->Acquire() ;
			while(g_hr == DIERR_INPUTLOST) 
					g_hr = g_lpDIKeyboard->Acquire() ;
			Write2Log("Keyboard acquired") ;
		} // end of if

		//return false ;

	} // end of if

	else
	{
		Write2Log("Keyboard acquired") ;
	} // end of else

  
btw in my Log file it says : "Acquiring of keyboard failed, trying again" and then "Keyboard acquired" later I get the same error when I try to acquire the mouse so there I also added the same code now in my menuloop I have this code :
  
void MenuInput()
{
	g_lpDIKeyboard->GetDeviceState(sizeof(buffer),(LPVOID)&buffer) ; 
     
    if (KEYDOWN(buffer, DIK_ESCAPE))
	{
		// when pressing escape, exit game

		g_CGE_GameState = kill ;
	}

	if (KEYDOWN(buffer, DIK_UP) && bKeyUp)
	{
		// when pressing arrow up

		nMenuChoice = nMenuChoice - 1 ;
		if (nMenuChoice < 0) nMenuChoice = 2 ;
		bKeyUp = true ;
	}
	else 
	{
		bKeyUp = false ;
	}

	if (KEYDOWN(buffer, DIK_DOWN) && bKeyDown)
	{
		// when pressing arrow down

		nMenuChoice = nMenuChoice + 1 ;
		if (nMenuChoice > 2) nMenuChoice = 0 ;
		bKeyDown = true ;
	}
	else
	{
		bKeyDown = false ;
	}

} // end of MenuInput() 

  
and in my loop I can''t use the keyboard anymore again and a couple of days ago all worked fine (then I added code for creation of fonts) if any1 could help me out here I would really apreciate it thanx in advance
