Hey I know I necro the thread but there is a whole slew of files from the online and I don't know which one to click. There is no "June 2010_d3dx9_35.dll." There is a "June 2010_d3dx10_43_x64."
Assume I know nothing about this sort of stuff. Very aggravating as a first gog.com user with my first game and not being able to run it.
Thanks again for anyone helping to respond.
That's because you do not get the DLL alone. You must get the entire DirectX 9 package which, among other files, contains the DLL. The links I gave were to the package and its Web-based installer; you can use either, but do not use any other. There is only one file on each page, and it has a big orange DOWNLOAD button next to it. Once you have downloaded the file, just run it. Don't try to unpack it or look inside. "No user-serviceable parts inside".
Do exactly as I described. After you are done, the missing DLL will have been installed to the correct place.
NEVER simply download a DLL from an unofficial source. At best, you will be unable to install it in the correct place. More likely, it will conflict with other files that are installed. Worst case, it will be a trojan, and you will end up having to clean up or reformat your whole system.
I already clicked the big orange button. What is the "correct place?" Where do I have to download it to. I just put it in my download file when it asked me where to put it. Also which filed to I click?
