well, i think its your header files are missing the include statements

you have to include the directx header for the interface you are using.


    
#include<ddraw.h>


or it could be no stdafx, missing semi-colon or even a missing brace.

post your code

It could also mean that one of the lines above your declaration of lpdd is missing a semi-colon. If you have any custome header files included (and the above answer isn''t the problem) then make sure all of your function/class declarations end with a semi-colon.

Thank you for your help.
Unfortunately I do have #include <ddraw.h> in header file
and I don''t miss any semi-colon.
I suspect I didn''t add my drectx lib files to linker and I don''t know how to do it.
can you tell me ?

It''s probably the order in which you include the file. Is ddraw.h (or d3d8.h) included before blackbox.h? It wouldn''t be a linker error - those would show undefined function errors (with the word link to the left of the message). To add to the link files, in Visual C/C++ 6.x, goto Projects, Settings, Link Tab - Objects/Library Modules text box - add your link files there.

Somewhere before line 34 in blackbox.h you''re missing a semicolor. Check each line starting at 34 and moving backwards. Perhaps at the end of a class declaraction. If you post blackbox.h, it might help.
