Can I read input from a USB joystick in VB.NET VS2010 on Windows 7 64 bit machine. I am trying to utilize the Microsoft.DirectX.DirectInput framework but having no success. Should I be looking into the XNA framework? I ran dxdiag and it shows that DirectX 11 is installed but where are the dll references? Please Help

I was able to read input for a USB joystick using DirectX.DirectInput by
1. Downloading DirectX SDK from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=6812
2. Creating VB.Net Project in VS2010 Framework 4.0 with help from sample code at http://settorezero.blogspot.com/2010/11/using-joysticks-from-vbnet.html
3. Applying the following to the project's app.config file
