D3DX9_32.DLL – Microsoft DirectX Gaming Runtime Library
Yet another release of the DirectX 9.0 by Microsoft, the all-new d3dx9_32.dll, took place in December 2006. Within two years, Microsoft released 9 separate extended versions of d3dx.dll file for running Windows-based 3D DirectX games. The latest games with 3D graphical experiences all require the new d3dx9_32.dll file. Some of the games using this latest DirectX 9.0 extension are FPS Creator, Civilization IV, Geometry Wars, Virtual Tennis 3, NoLimits Fairground, FIBA Basketball Manager, Barbie as the Island Princess, Autodesk 3ds Max, Silent Hunter 4: Wolves of the Pacific, F.E.A.R Perseus Mandate and VGMTrans.
Like with all the other earlier releases of d3dx runtime library files by Microsoft, there are persistent problems for gamers. The most common issue was that the previous releases became incompatible with the latest DirectX games. Each DirectX 9.0 version redistribution has a new 3D dll and should be acquired either via the game disk or online from a site such as www.microsoft.com/directx or http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?d3dx9_32, which are secure and recommended download areas.
Errors Related to D3DX9_32.DLL
Similar to all the other various d3dx runtime file releases by Microsoft, the errors related to the d3dx9_32.dll are mostly with regard to missing the file in an installation. As such, you may receive any of the following error messages:
“File d3dx9_32.dll not found”
“The file d3dx9_32.dll is missing”
“D3DX9_32.DLL is missing. Replace D3DX9_32.DLL and try again.”
“D3dx9_32.dll not found. Reinstalling might help fix this.”
“Missing component d3dx9_32.dll”
Fixing all of these errors requires only one solution – installing the missing dll file. The file can be found on the sites mentioned previously and should be installed in the system32 folder to ensure all games and advanced graphical applications can access the dll file from a common location.
