I didn't test all the possibilities, only 2:
1. CoCreateInstance(IDirectInput7W). QueryInterface(IDirectInput7A).
1. CoCreateInstance(IDirectInput8W). QueryInterface(IDirectInput8A).

IMHO the opposite should work too (A->W). As far as DI7<->DI8, I had to add 
that into the mix too, because DI8 thunks all the methods into DI7 and apps 
had problems with creating DI8 objects.

In the future DI7 and DI8 should probably be separate, and implemented in 
their respective dlls.
