I''m using DirectX 8 with Visual C++ .NET. Nothing seems to be wrong except with a call to QueryInterface(). When I compile my code, I get a linker error that says it cannot find the IID_IDirectDraw7 interface ID. I know that it is typed correctly and I''m pretty sure that the DX libraries are being linked. I believe the linker error is LNK2001, and it''s followed by another error that tells me the number of "unresolved externals". If anyone has any insight on this, please share. Many thanks in advance, ~ MajorShredd ~
