you should install the Windows SDK from the setup tool.

once you have that there should be something like:
<drive>:\<Program Files>\Windows Kits\<version>\Include\<version>\um\DSound.h
<drive>:\<Program Files>\Windows Kits\<version>\Lib\<version>\um\\DSound.lib

..but i haven't tried that on VS2015. i could also try sending a
message to Windows support to see if they respond.
