    Question Help with DirectInput

    I am attempting to program a joystick enumalator with DirectInput.
    I got it to where my code finally appears to work, but now I get some linker errors.
    Code:
     [Linker error] undefined reference to `IID_IDirectInput8A' 
     [Linker error] undefined reference to `DirectInput8Create@20' 
     [Linker error] undefined reference to `GUID_XAxis' 
     [Linker error] undefined reference to `GUID_YAxis'
    ...and so on.
    I have linked dinput.lib,dinput8.lib, all the ones I can find.
    And when I link dxguid.lib, some of them vanish, but I get another error:
    Code:
      .drectve `/DEFAULTLIB:"uuid.lib" /DEFAULTLIB:"uuid.lib" 'unrecognized
    Am I not linking something? Bad Code, perhaps?
    Can anyone help?
    Thanks,

    Make sure you define what version of DirectInput you want BEFORE you include it's header.
    I have no idea why they designed it this way, but if you don't do this, it won't work.

    Thanks, but... it doesn't really change anything.

    I put:
    Code:
    #define DIRECTINPUT_VERSION 0x0800
    #include <dinput.h>
    #include <dinputd.h>
    EDIT:
    Never mind, I just needed different versions of the libraries then I had-
    works OK now.
