Ok this happens because you hate Windows!!

The error message is telling you that the libraries are missing during the linking process.

Did you really add these files to the project settings( for DEBUG and RELEASE? ) - you wrote something about options menue...maybe you only included the paths to the libraries!

Perhaps you have included directories of an older directx as well, that is why it only gets errors on the new directx stuff. Make sure you only have the newest directories included.

Nah it was cause I had to link DXGUID.lib as well as the other library. Lets give a big round of applause to the ole'' directx documentation as we promptly flush it down the toilet cause it''s SHIT
