WAR.exe - Unable to Locate Component

#1CLtrackStar4Posted 10/13/2008 7:45:58 AM
This application has failed to start because d3dx9_34.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


Does anyone know what to do here?

Where would I find the 2 dll's folder and where would I find the system folder? (I don't know a lot about computers if you haven't noticed yet)

The .dll files that i had to copy were just in the warhammer online folder as loose files if it's not there then i would just look in each one.

I found a few.

There's:
patchui_win.dll
mss32.dll
libpatchui.dll
binkw32.dll

These are all the loose dll files in the WAR folder. How do I know which system folder to copy them into?

I had to copy and paste the Binkw and the mss32 .dll files to my "system" folder which is in the Windows folder.

other then that i would have no clue.

Well I've coppied those 4 dll files into 4 folders or so, one is called System, one is called Windows, one is called Windows Media, and the last one is in the regular WAR folder.

Sadly to say, none of it is working, the same message comes up when the patch finishes.
:(

The only one that they should be needed to be copied to (if any) is the "system" folder that is inside of the "Windows" folder. short of looking up the error on google and seeing what you can come up with i dont really know what to tell ya.

google is what i used to find out what i needed to do to make it work. maybe you'll have the same luck?
