I''m getting an error for this line: ddrval = DirectDrawCreateEx(NULL, &lpDD, IID_IDirectDraw7, NULL) cannot convert parameter 2 from ''LPDIRECTDRAW7*__w64'' to ''LPVOID*''

It''s saying it can''t turn an LPDIRECTDRAW* into a void**. Cast the &lpDD explicitly to void** by doing this:

ddrval = DirectDrawCreateEx(NULL, (void**)&lpDD, IID_IDirectDraw7, NULL);
