I looked at the SDK.  I seem to remeber about MS making is possible to link with a dll instead of a static lib.  That static lib made assembly development very difficult.

I've been dumping the dll and libs found in the SDK.  Only the libs seem to conatain any useful data on function entry points.

Direct3DCreate9 is inside the D3D9.dll
D3DX* are inside the d3dx9_.dll

You access DirectSound via CoInitialize/CoCreateInstance. same goes for direct music, direct input and direct show.  Direct Play is deprecated since 9.0a - MS recommends to use Windows sockets.
