Hi I've got an application, whose front-end was developed with DirectDraw, and, even though the compiled version runs fine, I can't successfully compile the code. Can you use the LPDIRECTDRAW7 (as well as others that are part of Directx7.0) interface through Directx9.0c? Perhaps, I am including the wrong headers or linking to the wrong libraries. BTW, I am including <ddraw.h>.

Yes, you can.

1) What kind of errors do you get? Compiler or linker errors?
2) What SDK are you compiling against?
3) Which compiler are you using?

Hi Coder

1. I get compiler errors, the likes of "undeclared identifier found" and all that that ensues.

2. The SDK is Directx9.0c. I think it's the summer update of 2004.

3. I am using Visual Studio 6.0
