sorry...
here is the code:

bool CreateTheDI()
{
if(FAILED(DirectInput8Create(g_hInst,DIRECTINPUT_VERSION,IID_IDirectInput8,(void**)&g_pDI,NULL)))
{
MessageBox(g_hWnd,"DI: 1","Error",MB_OK);
return FALSE;
}
if(FAILED(g_pDI->CreateDevice(GUID_SysKeyboard,&g_pDIDevice,NULL)))
{
MessageBox(g_hWnd,"DI: 2","Error",MB_OK);
return FALSE;
}
if(FAILED(g_pDIDevice->SetDataFormat(&c_dfDIKeyboard )))
{
MessageBox(g_hWnd,"DI: 3","Error",MB_OK);
return FALSE;
}

if(FAILED(g_pDIDevice->SetCooperativeLevel(g_hWnd,DISCL_FOREGROUND | DISCL_NONEXCLUSIVE)))
{
MessageBox(g_hWnd,"DI: 4","Error",MB_OK);
return FALSE;
}

if(FAILED(g_pDIDevice->Acquire()))
{
MessageBox(NULL,"DI:5",NULL,MB_OK);
return FALSE;
