I am running into an issue where I cannot create direct3d objects. I am using Visual C++ 2010 Express. After I installed vc++2010express I then installed the June 2010 release of DirectX.
I am trying to include DirectX via #pragma statements. This is the code I have so far in my winmain.cpp source file:
#include <Windows.h> #include <d3d11.h> #include <time.h> #include <iostream> using namespace std; #pragma comment(lib, "d3d11.lib") #pragma comment(lib, "d3dx11.lib") // program settings const string AppTitle = "Direct3D in a Window"; const int ScreenWidth = 1024; const int ScreenHeight = 768; // direct3d objects LPDIRECT3D11 d3d = NULL; // this line is showing an error
LPDIRECT3D11 is showing an error:
Error: Identifier "LPDIRECT3D11" is undefined
Am I missing something here to get VC++2010Express to recognize and load the DirectX libs?
Thanks for any help.
