DEV C++ direct X #include <dshow.h> errors and problems

Hi people. Im a little off lately...

 I have a problem here with my dev C++ 4 compiler...  i need to create a component that show the image of a webcam. So, for that, i have the direct x packedge libraries and include files downloaded from www.bloodshed.net...

I set up everything as the readme.txt file that cames with the packedge says to, and in my program i include dshow.h ...

#include <windows.h>
#include <dshow.h>

 int WINAPI WinMain(HINSTANCE h, HINSTANCE ph, LPSTR par, int show)
  {
   return 0;
  }

Here is the message errors im having, and its impossible to compile becouse of them:

36 c:\dev-c++\include\dx8\dshow.h
 from c:\escola\interface software iedec\final development\main.cpp:3:
21 c:\dev-c_~1\include\mmsystem.h

 from c:\escola\interface software iedec\final development\main.cpp:3:

Update your SDK from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?pr=psdk

The Windows SDK that came with your dev C++ 4 compiler is older than that required by the WebCam software. I would recommend not only to update the SDK but get a newer Compiler as well.

Maybe you could ask these bloodshed people what kind of compiler they would recommend.

I thought "Update your SDK" would imply that...

I know three words from jkr could imply more than thousand words of us minor experts ... but maybe the questioner didn't know that up to now ...  ;-)
