Default Can't get DirectInput keyboard device


Well, actually I can when I use the DirectInput.Manager.GetDevices function like this (using Imports Microsoft.DirectX.DirectInput before class declaration):

Code:
Dim kbdev As Device Dim devlist As DeviceList devlist = Manager.GetDevices(DeviceType.Keyboard, EnumDevicesFlags.AttachedOnly) devlist.MoveNext() kbdev = New Device(devlist.Current.InstanceGuid)

But every tutorial or example I've seen uses this simpler code:

Code:
kbdev = New Device(SystemGuid.Keyboard)

When I try that it gives this error:
"Field not found: Microsoft.DirectX.DirectInput.SystemGuid.Keyboard"

My Googling didn't turn up anyone else having this problem. Any ideas?

Default

try this

KeyDevice = New DirectInput.Device(DirectInput.SystemGuid.Keyboard)

I had the same problem and I add the long namespace for the reference and it worked after that
