    Compiler errors

    OK, I have been learning DirectX for a while now and everything has been going (mostly) great. I am about throught with the graphics part and moving on to DirectInput. The first example that I did is throwing these errors at me.
    Warning: .drectve `/DEFAULTLIB:"uuid.lib" /DEFAULTLIB:"uuid.lib" ' unrecognized

    C:/Dev-Cpp/lib/libdinput8.a(dilib1.obj)(.text+0x20):..\dilib1.c: undefined reference to `GUID_ZAxis'
    Now, and correct me if I am wrong, it looks to me that it is trying to include 'uuid.lib' twice, but I cannot find where it is doing this, much less how to correct it.

    I have read various texts that state you must
    #define INITGUID
    so that you can use GUID_SysKeyboard / GUID_SysMouse and
    #define DIRECTINPUT_VERSION 0x0800
    but these do not seem to make any difference

    I am thinking that all the other errors on the list originate from the first two lines but I am at a lost as to how to resolve it.

    This is what my main header looks like
    #ifndef STDHEADER_H
    #define STDHEADER_H
    #define INITGUID
    #define DIRECTINPUT_VERSION 0x0800
    #define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN
    // Incudes
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <ctime>
    #include <cstdio>
    // DirectX includes
    #include <d3d9.h>
    #include <d3dx9.h>
    #include <dinput.h>
    // other includes
    #include "cFramework.h"
    #include "cGraphics.h"
    #include "cGameApp.h"
    #include "CVertexBuffer.h"
    #include "CIndexBuffer.h"
    #include "CWorldTransform.h"
    #include "CUtility.h"
    #include "cTimer.h"
    #include "cFont.h"
    #include "cInput.h"
    //  Macros
    #define KEYDOWN(vk_code)     ( (GetAsyncKeyState(vk_code) & 0x8000) ? 1 : 0)
    #define KEYUP(vk_code)       ( (GetAsyncKeyState(vk_code) & 0x8000) ? 0 : 1)
    #define SAFE_DELETE(X)       { X = NULL; delete X; }
    #define SAFE_DELETE_ARRAY(X) if(X) { delete [] (X); (X) = NULL; }
    #define SAFE_RELEASE(X)      if(X) { (X)->Release(); (X) = NULL;  }
    #define SHOWERROR(s,f,l)     char ErrBuf[1024]; \
                                 sprintf(ErrBuf, "File: %s\nLine: %d\n%s",f,l,s); \
                                 MessageBox(0, ErrBuf, "Error", 0);
    and the only linker options i have are
    -ldinput8 -ld3d9 -ld3dx9
    Thanx for any help

    I am using Dev-C++, Windows XP

    You must link with dxguid.lib to link in the GUIDs.

    OK, I missed that part in my book. It said the #include INITGUID OR link th dxguid.lib... missed the or part :P

    Its working now, thanx Bubba!
