I just downloaded DX8, wow, it''s different! But anyway, i am trying to create a LPDIRECTINPUT8 object, and it was all going good, Untill i tryed to compile anyway. I got 2 errors: error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _DirectInput8Create@20 fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals Error executing link.exe. DX8 installed perfectlt too, i can''t figure it out. I included the dinput.lib into my project. Am i missing a library or something?

Make sure you are telling your compiler where the new DX8 lib/header files are. I know with VC++ I had to copy all the new files into my VC++ directory. If that isn''t the problem try linking the dxguid.lib. I know this is needed for lots of DX8 stuff.
