Default DX90c - DixDiag showing DirectInput Error

After trying to get an old game going (Links 2003) I keep getting ctd's and this error:
AppName: linksmmiii.exe AppVer: 22.10.2.41 ModName: ntdll.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.5512 Offset: 0001aa01
Looking around I found DirectX can cause this and since I hadn't ranDxDiag for years thought I'd give it a try. I got the following screen:


Here you either answer yes or it ctd's, this is possibly the problem, however I don't know what device it could be, I checked Device manager and found that there are 2 mice and 2 keyboards:


Could this be the problem, maybe I should disable all these drivers and reboot, but in past experience I bet I get both installed again or one with a question mark!!
Any idea's?

No sooner I get this up after pulling my hair out for hours and I find the problem, it was my weather station, it has a usb plug to send the data to the pc - unplug it!!!

It sounds like...

Winblows made an arbitrary designation for your weather equipment.
It may be feasible to go into the hardware manager and change the hardware type designator/s manually. YMMV
