Missing d3dx9_40.dll

Missing d3dx9_40.dll

It is happened last night. I just finish installing a game. When i start the game there is a warning that inform Missing d3dx9_40.dll. The warnings might varies such as “D3dx9_40.dll not found. Reinstalling might help fix this.”,”The file d3dx9_40.dll is missing”, etc. And I just know that this problems related to Directx.

I have tried restarting my laptop, and itwont work. The funny thing is, my Directx installed is directx 11, then d3dx9 files should be for directx 9 (if im not mistaken :D). Installing new directx just wont work for me. However I found, a solution for this problem.

These are the steps:

Frist, We download d3dx9_40.dll file directly from internet.

Second, People might say, that we just need to place the d3dx9_40.dll file into C:\Windows\system. However, that might be not a correct way. We need to find out the exact location where the windows system place the directx files. To find out, we need open explorer with the path C:\Windows.

Third, Start searching files that started with “d3dx”. Type it in search windows top right corner.

 

search_d3dx

search_d3dx

Fourth, After the result come out, analyze it.

result_d3dx

result_d3dx

If we see an example figure above we can asume that most of d3dx… files is placed in C:\Windows\System32.

Fifth, Place the d3dx9_40.dll into the right place. In this example it should be C:\Windows\System32.

Sixth, Try again the program.W

Well done, we just solve Missing d3dx9_40.dll problems.

Good luck.
