Directx - External Symbol Error - Well i can't seem to find a solution

I know whats wrong, but i don't know which libraries I'm not including.

Include Directories:
$(VCInstallDir)include;$(VCInstallDir)atlmfcinclude;$(WindowsSdkDir)include;$(FrameworkSDKDir)include;E:Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)Includex86;E:Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)Includex64;E:Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)Include


Library Directories:
$(VCInstallDir)lib;$(VCInstallDir)atlmfclib;$(WindowsSdkDir)lib;$(FrameworkSDKDir)lib;E:Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)Lib;E:Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)Libx64;E:Microsoft DirectX SDK (June 2010)Libx86

Additional Dependencies:
kernel32.lib;user32.lib;gdi32.lib;winspool.lib;comdlg32.lib;advapi32.lib;shell32.lib;ole32.lib;oleaut32.lib;uuid.lib;odbc32.lib;odbccp32.lib;%(AdditionalDependencies);d3dx9.lib;d3d9.lib;d3d11.lib;d3dx11.lib;d3dx10.lib;d3d10.lib


I have many times searched on the internet, people seem to find a solution, but when i follow the answer given, it don't seem to work as i were given these errors.

Best Regards
