I have installed DirectX 9.0 April 2005 SDK Update. I'm using Visual Studio 2005 Express Beta and have installed Windows XP SP2 SDK. I have configured VC++'s path settings and have the Windows SDK paths on top and put my DX SDK paths below it. But for some reason when i try to compile i get a ton of Link errors LNK2019 and LNK 2001 which are (unresolved external symbol errors). Does anyone know how to resolve this issue... Thank you :_)

Have you applied the advice in the Readme?

Visual Studio 2005 Support
The samples do not compile immediately with the Visual Studio 2005 Beta. For Beta 1, add the library "libcp.lib" to the ignore library project setting (Project Settings / Linker / Input / Ignore Specific Library). For Beta 2, you must set "Generate Manifest" (under Linker/Manifest File) to No and "Embed Manifest" (under Manifest Tool/Input & Output) to No.

The DirectX SDK Setup will not add the include or library directories. These must be added manually.

These issues will be resolved when Visual Studio 2005 is officially supported.
