Gah, I feel really bad for you. Give us your professor's email and we'll spam him with 'ohh the humanity! not DPlay!' messages ;)

If you roll back to an older 9.0 SDK [old ones here], you can get all of the resources you need (since it has been removed in recent releases). Here is an introductory article on it, right here on GameDev.
