We''re using DirectX 8.1. In our "engine" we made some DirectInput components, and this worked just fine. Now it has been a while since we opened the project, and suddenly we get al sorts of errors regarding DirectInput! Some of the errors: error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _GUID_SysMouse error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _GUID_SysKeyboard error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _IID_IDirectInput8A Etc. There was installed a DX9 SDK. We''ve removed this one and installed the DX8.1 SDK again. Could this have anything to do with our problems? Thnx

It can''t find the definitions for these functions in the libraries/headers. DirectX 8 libraries are not installed...

Clue... _IDirectInput8A

Reinstalling DX8.1 should have fixed it. Manually uninstall DirectX SDK then reinstall DX8.1 to ensure there are no conflicts.
