I've been trying to get a DirectPlay-capable application up and running, but I have this problem:
Every time I try to initialize the DirectPlay object, the CoCreateInstance function returns an error not listed in the DPERR define list.
In short, I cannot initialize my DirectPlay object, and I'm cutting and pasting code directly from the Microsoft DX7a SDK examples (which work fine).
Is there anything that needs to be initialized before trying to create the DirectPlay object?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
