Help me compile this!

hey there...
i'm posting a c++ code which is came with microsoft Directx9 SDK...
when i try to compile it from the original directory it all works and the blue window appears...
but when i copy the cpp file to other diectory and try to compileand link, 2 linking errors occurs

Linking...
13.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _Direct3DCreate9@4
Debug/132.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Error executing link.exe.

132.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

i'm using visual c++ 6.

this is the code...
