                MessageBox( NULL, "Couldn't Create DDraw Object", MyTitle, MB_ICONERROR);

if( lpdd->CreateClipper( NULL, &lpddclip, NULL) != DD_OK)
		MessageBox( NULL, "Couldn't Create Clipper", MyTitle, MB_ICONERROR);

	lpddclip->GetHWnd( &hwnd);

	ZeroMemory( &ddsc, sizeof(ddsc));
	ddsc.dwSize		= sizeof(ddsc);
	ddsc.dwFlags	= DDSD_CAPS;
	ddsc.ddsCaps.dwCaps = DDSCAPS_PRIMARYSURFACE;           if( lpdd->CreateSurface( &ddsc, &lpddprimary, NULL) != DD_OK)
		MessageBox( NULL, "Couldn't Create Surface", MyTitle, MB_ICONERROR);
