My game would quit after it started running, so I narrowed the cause of the problem down to this code:
	// Create primary surface

	memset(&ddsd, 0, sizeof(ddsd));
	ddsd.dwSize = sizeof(ddsd);
	ddsd.dwFlags = DDSD_CAPS;
	ddsd.dwBackBufferCount = 1;

	DDError = lpdd4->CreateSurface(&ddsd, &lpddsprimary, NULL);
	if (DDError != DD_OK)
		MessageBox(hwnd, "CreateSurface Error", "Error", MB_OK);

		return 1;

I get the CreateSurface error. What should I look for? Should I change anything? Thanks a lot, you all are really helpful.
