Start from desktop
Go to where ever you installed the capter6 box solution and open it. Make sure its the solution.
look at the properties of the color.fx file. You will see that the properties are completely different from the properties if you were to make your own blank project and import the common,FX,and source cpp file. You must change the color.fx properties to match the original box solution. Also
make sure you add the right dependencies when you run the box solution.
Also make sure you have a physical FX folder in your projects directory.
Please let me know how it works for you
