Which operating system are you running? What version of GZDoom?

You must use Windows XP with Service Pack 3 or greater in order to use the current version of GZDoom. If you continue getting this error then your installation is clearly corrupt as it is not finding the DirectInput files which have been standardized since then. If you are getting this error on Windows Server, ensure that the "Desktop" role is installed and activated.

Moving to tech issues.
