When I call createDevice a problem appears;


This is what I get from the HRESULT of the call:

Invalid call
I want to use the windowed mode,here's the code for the initialization:
I'm passing 0 to some members because that's what you are supposed to pass for windowed mode.
        d3dpp.Windowed = true;
	d3dpp.hDeviceWindow = deviceWindow;
	d3dpp.BackBufferHeight = 0;
	d3dpp.BackBufferWidth = 0;
	d3dpp.MultiSampleQuality = 0;
	d3dpp.MultiSampleType = D3DMULTISAMPLE_NONE;
	d3dpp.SwapEffect = D3DSWAPEFFECT_DISCARD;
	d3dpp.EnableAutoDepthStencil = true;
	d3dpp.AutoDepthStencilFormat = D3DFMT_D24S8;
	d3dpp.FullScreen_RefreshRateInHz = 0;
	d3dpp.PresentationInterval = D3DPRESENT_INTERVAL_ONE;
	d3dpp.BackBufferCount = 0;

        pD3D = Direct3DCreate9(D3D_SDK_VERSION);
What exactly am i doing wrong?

I'm not seeing where you're setting the BackBufferFormat member, which should be D3DFMT_UNKNOWN for windowed modes.  Also, you haven't said what hardware you're using - most hardware will support D3DCREATE_HARDWARE_VERTEXPROCESSING | D3DCREATE_PUREDEVICE but you should be certain that your's does.
