I''m not sure if the SDK provides the headers for previous version''s interfaces, so it may not compile. It would be a lot easier just to downgrade to DX7 or upgrade your dinput code.

The DirectX 8 SDK (as well as 9) does include the headers for all the previous interface versions. You just have to use a define to indicate which version of the interface you want to use. Look in the dinput.h header for a hint.
