DirectInput8-Acquire() is returning DIERR_OTHERAPPHASPRIO

Recommended Posts

Whenever I try to Acquire() the keyboard, I get a DIERR_OTHERAPPHASPRIO error. I am trying to get NonExclusive access with the window in the Foreground. I have tried acquiring Exclusive access, which doesn't work. I have tried starting the app from My Documents by double clicking the .exe rather than invoking it from the VC debugger; that doesn't work either (the app shuts down if it can't acquire the keyboard). How do I get priority access to the keyboard, or get access period?
