Had the same problem with an XP SP3 Dell laptop. Updating DirectX didn't help either, and dxdiag also failed to enumerate DirectInput. So I rebuilt SDL without DirectX support and everything works. Extract the attached SDL.DLL over the one in the DosBox directory, and make sure you set the video config of DosBox to anything non-"direct".

Did you try "SET SDL_VIDEODRIVER=WINDIB" ? I think it also has an effect on SDL's use of DirectInput, based on a few cases where it appeared to, but don't know if it will help with this problem.
