I''m trying to compile the ''font'' sample that comes with DX SDK and im using B5.5(compiler w/o builder) and when going through the linking process i get this error: "Unresolved External ''DirectDrawCreateEX''" Could anyone shed some light on how to compile these samples w/ borland? -tyman (tron7475@hotmail.com)

To compile it you have to link in the DirectX libraries. This time, you must link in ddraw.lib. What you do is add ddraw.lib to your project (there may be another way, but I don''t know about it in Borland C++...). Just find the file in your DirectX SDK directory (mssdk by default) in the libs/borland directory.

Hope this helps!
