    DirectX question, please read!

    First, I am using Dev-C++. When I try to compile any DirectX C++ source it gives me this error:

    671 c:\dev-c_~1\include\objidl.h
    `com_interface' only supported with -fvtable-thunks

    I can't figure this out. I know I cross posted, but I made the subject too... deferrant. What does the -fvtable-thunks thing mean? Is it a compiler option? Thanks very much!

    Did you get the DirectX package from the site?
    The normal DirectX SDK has problems with Dev C++.
    A kind man has made a compatible API for Dev C++ and you can get it from bloodshed.
    If that doesn't work post again and I'll try and walk you through it.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?
