Program Load problem
Usually I just read through these forums however I have come across a issue that doesn't appear to be covered.
Before I start I should let you know Im not at all good with comps and can only do basics.
I have installed a game (Hearts of Iron 3). This works fine. However when I install the expansion (Semper Fi) and try to load it, I get the following error:
The program can't start because d3dx9_40.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.
Like the error message suggested, I went ahead and reinstalled, twice actually, but again I get this error.
This error is weird because before I reinstalled windows the games worked fine.
Extra information :
1 )Before I reinstalled windows, when the games worked fine, I also had other newer games such as Battlefield Bad Company 2, Starcraft e.t.c
2) After reinstallign windows I only have Starcraft and Company Of Heroes.
3) Operating system I am using is Windows 7 professional 64 bit. (This did not come with my laptop, I had to purchase it seperately).

Hi geezafrombrum, congratulations on your first post
That error is quite common if you don't have DirectX9 or 10 installed, try downloading the DirectX End-User Runtime and installing it.
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer
