I use BCB6 myself, and have not had any experiance with that book, or Visual C++. what I *can* say is this:

1)Run the DirectX SDK, and install it to somthing like "C:\\DxSDK"
2)When you create your new project in C++, under your project settings, under your include folder paths, add(i'm going from memory here, so the paths might be *slightly* wrong) before any other paths, "C:\\DxSDK\Includes" and under your Library paths(again before any other paths), add "C:\\DxSDK\Libs"
3)Add the required "*.lib" files that you need.
4)Include the "*.h" files that you need for your project

I hope this helps
