I'm getting Linker error LNK2001 when compiling my first DirectX app as Win32 Release, although it compiles fine under Win32 Debug, the project type is Win32 Application (Using MSVC++6.0 standard).
DirectDrawSprites.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _DirectDrawCreateEx@16
DirectDrawSprites.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _IID_IDirectDraw7
Release/Step2.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 2 unresolved externals
Most of the code is from a tutorial on www.sunlightd.com, slightly modified, it's attached to this post.
Thanks in advance fort any help
