d3dx9_42.dll missing

I just downloaded Democracy 3 on my Windows 10 machine. But, whenever I try to run the installer, I get a d3dx9_42.dll missing error message. I read in one of your forums that downloading the dll from fix4dll.com/download?file=d3dx9_42.dll and then overriding the library in the windows/system folder is the way get past the issue. Please confirm if that is the correct to resolve this.
Thanks for your earliest attention!

I have the same thing happening to me, but the file missing is d3dx9_41.dlll instead of 42. Could you tell me how you solved this?

Hi, you can grab the file here:
unzip that into the democracy 3 folder (the one with Democracy3.exe in it).
That should fix it.
It seems some builds of windows dont have it for some reason :frowning:

did you fix your problem with downloading the d3dx9_41 file? because I found the same file on DLL Installer because the link in the last message from positech did not open to me. If you are still active on this forum can you explain how you fix the error on your pc?
