Never had that particular problem, but when I tried to play Age of Mythology, the igfx display driver kept crashing and being fixed. The Windows support people were worthless, only saying that the game "is not supported" on Vista, but I found an update from Intel for the driver and the problem is gone, or at least better; the game still runs slow, but that could just be my system. It seems that Vista is not compatible with an annoying amount of other older games too.
I had a problem like this with playing a demo of broken sword the angel of death game, for some reason there was a direct x file that apparetly I didn't have and the demo didn't either so I had to update my direct x from the website.
Just finally got round 2 gettin RE-4 (Resident Evil 4) and of course the d3dx9.dll issue pops up.... guess I wasn't as up to snuff as I thought....
just one more 4 the list

Comment from: Henri Visitor
Thanks for the tip :)
I got this error on Civilization 4 after I downloaded an upgrade for Civ 4-Warlords (upgrade from 1.0 that's on the disc to 2.13).
The disc comes with DirectX 9. After reading your comments, I managed to figure out that the upgrade needs DirectX 10. The installation process did not mention this at all.
So thanks again, I can finally start playing my game now.
i had a problem with black and white2

Comment from: Itsamee Visitor
I am using Visual C++ (Express) 2008 on a Vista Home Premium (SP1) system with a non-DX10 GFX card. Applications that I previously built on VC++ Express 2008 on an XP Pro (SP3) system cannot find the relevant DirectX DLLs (d3dx9_38.dll).
I have installed the latest DX SDK, but a search of the system indicates that the file has not been installed.
Any ideas ?

I searched my C-drive through and found files from d3dx9_24.dll to d3dx9_32.dll, yet the game required d3dx9_33.dll.
I shall try to get newer version of direct X (bundle) from:
I'll bet that will do the trick.

What is going on? I have to reinstall Direct x nearly every day now. That d3dx9 file disappears every day.
After reinstalling it works great, wait a day and it is gone again.

Comment from: ankit Visitor
I've got directx 10 on my computer. when i run the game (NFSMW), it says that it needs d3dx9_26.dll. so i downloaded it, and its working, but there's a major lag, and i think its because of this file. because when i ran the game earlier, it worked fine.
i checked on the microsoft site for updates, but its got updates for 9.0c or earlier versions. any suggestions?
Comment from: Danielle Visitor
I had this problem with Sim City Societies and then I went to the Microsoft's downloads links in this post and downloaded and installled the lastest DirectX. Now it works perfectly. ;) Thank you very much.
And for those who said the post doesn't give a solution, that's the one it gives: installing the Direct X, you should read it all before commenting.
it cannot be started bcoz d3dx9_26.dll was not found

Some game launchers will start to abort launching the game claiming missing d3dx9.dll.
Often the game site redirects to the dxwebsetup that downloads ver 6.00.2600.0000
dling this and clicking it to install does NOT fix the missing .dll
In windows 7 i already have D3DX9_43.dll (System32 folder) and D3DX9_43_x64 and _86 (in the Intel\Extreme Tuning Utility\Drivers\DirectX folder).
Now the games are specifically looking for d3dx9_dll.
Most games that require d3dx9_dll will more than likely never run on Windows 8. It is a major backwards compatibility issue. I am sure an Engineer with working knowledge of how direct X drivers render graphics and the calls video games to them could tell you a more detailed explanation.
The new d3dx11_dll drivers simply are not compatible with the old rendering methods of the d3dx9_dll drivers.
