DirectInput/DirectDraw GUID Definition trouble

DirectInput/DirectDraw GUID Definition trouble

DirectInput/DirectDraw GUID Definition trouble

I have been using the DirectInput libraries recently to get hold of the keyboard. However, I haven't been able to do so much as initialize an instance of the IDirectInput class due to the face that my compiler keeps complaining that the IID_IDirectInput8A GUID definition is not defined in the header file I am using. The exact error says something like:

"Undefined symbol IID_IDirectInput8A ... "

I have located the definition in the header file and have identified it as being defined using the DEFINE_GUID macro. Eithor this macro is corrupt, or my compiler has a problem with it.

I am using Metrowerks Codewarrior. If anyone has any suggestions or explainations they would be appreciated.

RE: DirectInput/DirectDraw GUID Definition trouble

Try these instead of IID_IDirectInput8A:
