Are the libraries in the path for the compiler ?
(Tools, Options, Directories )

You need to specify the path to those libraries. In MSVC++ go to the Tools menu and select options. A dialog box will pop up and you need to click on the directories tab. There is a drop down box on the directories page you need to select Library files, than you need to specify where those directX libraries are. So double click on the list box and put in the exact path to the folder those library files are in. Once you''ve created that path you should drag it to the top of the list....I think you have to do this for the include files also.

Hope this helps
