Nice little section of errors. This happens when I build in release. Works fine in debug. In release I DID link the libraries in the properties (both directories and libraries) 

 

#pragma comment(lib, "d3d11.lib")
#pragma comment(lib, "d3dx11.lib")
#pragma comment(lib, "d3dx10.lib")
#pragma comment (lib, "D3D10_1.lib")
#pragma comment (lib, "DXGI.lib")
#pragma comment (lib, "D2D1.lib")
#pragma comment (lib, "dwrite.lib")
//#pragma comment(lib, "DXErr.lib")
#pragma comment(lib, "dinput8.lib")
#pragma comment(lib, "dxguid.lib")
#pragma comment(lib, "d3d9.lib")
#pragma comment(lib, "d3dx9.lib")




//#include <DxErr.h>
#include <windows.h>
#include <d3d11.h>
#include <d3dx11.h>
#include <d3dx10.h>
#include <xnamath.h>
#include <D3D10_1.h>
#include <DXGI.h>
#include <D2D1.h>
#include <sstream>
#include <dwrite.h>
#include <dinput.h>
#include <D3DX11async.h>

 

And that is the top of my main.cpp (the only file i have right now) 

I'm really not sure what i'm missing. 

 

> Libraries linked in Release :

D3D10.lib;d3d11.lib;d3dx11.lib;D3DCompiler.lib;dxerr.lib;dxgi.lib;dxguid.lib;dinput8.lib;D2D1.lib;dwrite.lib;d3d9.lib;d3dx9.lib;D3D10_1.lib;%(AdditionalDependencies)

Are you linking Release libraries? Debug might not work, not sure what kind of error it would throw though.

Edit:
I just checked out and cannot find debug/release .libs, seems there's no difference.

Have you tried to enable linker's messages to see if it's actually using those libraries? Edited by Zaoshi Kaba

I enabled it and it seems (while I was in settings) that there was a directory not included for some reason, even though I set it previously. -____- Terrible feels man. 

 

Thanks! I had heard of the linker messages but I wasn't sure what I could use them for, but now I have them enabled so i'm sure they'll help soon.  :)

I think you're not supposed to link dxguid.lib anymore. Instead you have to #include <InitGuid.h> along with any DX stuff that uses guids.
