Use DirectInputCreate or DirectInputCreateEx only for <=DirectInput7. For DirectInput8/9, use DirectInput8Create.

I hit exactly the same problem???

I recompiled an emulator I wrote 2 years ago that used DirectX 7 and now it won't run after compile??

The only differences are that I am using the DX9 headers and have DX9 installed on XP. Can I not use DX7 interfaces with DX9? Or is there a problem with the headers?

If you are using Clootie's DirectX 9 headers, you need add:
to the top of the DirectInput.pas file to make it use DirectX 7 definitions.
