Could you post the error lines? You're not linking to what you need to link to, but without the symbol names, I'd just be guessing as to what library is wrong/missing.

ok so i install dx mesh tutorial(6) from dx sdk. open it with code::blocks, use default compiler, import settings.
when then i look at link libs it linking with winmm, d3d9, d3dx9, d3dxof, dxguid.
in compiler settings i have sellected vc++2005 and added incude dirs VCinclude, platformsdk, dxsdk,
libs dirs same

You are right, these are all windows api calls.
Looks like most of these are from User32, so add User32.lib to your linked libraries.
If you search for the documentation on these functions at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/, the library that they are contained in is listed at the bottom.

This will get you nowhere, asking each time you get an unresolved symbol.
Please, learn how to search the documentation of the APIs you 're using...

Anyway, add gdi32 in libs.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...
