Did you add the directx header files to your project? All DirectX projects need to have dxguid.h included in the project (not just in the linker directories). Other headers are needed for different DirectX components:

DirectDraw - ddraw.h
DirectInput - dinput8.h
DirectSound - dsound.h
Direct3D - d3d9.h
...

Note: I am just telling you this off the top of my head, the filenames may not be exactly correct.

I don't use C++ but I think the errors would probably be more useful.

If they are linking errors then you know if you haven't set up your folder paths correctly or they might be changes in functions if the code was for a previous revision of DirectX.
