Don''t know if this''ll help, but here''s what I do:

int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
LPSTR lpCmdLine,int nCmdShow)
{
MSG msg;
BOOL GO=TRUE;

if(!initApp(hInstance,nCmdShow)) /**/
return FALSE;

while(GO)
{
if(PeekMessage(&msg,NULL,0,0,PM_REMOVE))
{
if(msg.message==WM_QUIT)
GO=FALSE;
TranslateMessage(&msg);
DispatchMessage(&msg);
}
else
renderFrame(); /**/
}
return (msg.wParam);
}

In the initApp() function I do all the windows initialization stuff, after that it calls a function that initializes directDraw (and loads bitmaps). Hope that helps.
