How about the actual error message, which must be a line above or something?
(you might also want to get a compiler that's a bit more recent, VC++ Express is free)

You need a more recent version of Visual C++. From the installation notes for the DirectX SDK (November 2008):
Quote:

This SDK installs on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Vista using Visual Studio .NET 2005 or 2008.

Even if it were not an actual requirement, I would equally encourage you to use the latest version of Microsoft's C++ compiler, as VC++ 6 is really, really obsolete.

You can freely download VC++ 2008 Express Edition from here.
