If you updated the DirectX SDK after installing MSVC++, then the newer functions won''t have that nifty parameter list appear. I''m not sure how to fix this, but it''s not a big deal. The function will still work in the program, assuming you put in the correct parameters. You might want to keep the updated DirectX help/reference file open while programming.

Add the files to the project. This does not require you to move the files on the hard disk, just add them to the project. In fact, the answer to this question is in the Forum FAQ.
