Windows 7: directX 9

directX 9

My game is crashing when I try to start it up the event log says its c/windows/system32/d3d9.dll error I've tried updating directx and everything is up to date. I tried to replace the d3d9.dll with one I downloaded and it says I need administrator permission to do it. I am the admin, and I even tried logged in as the hidden admin. Still won't let me do it. What do I need to do?

Try downloading the March issue of Direct X from Microsoft. August edition were known to have issues with certain games.

Download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer March 2009 9.27.1734 - This utility will help you easily install the DirectX 9.0c updates - Softpedia

The problem is that if you have already downloaded and installed the August Update of Direct X, the installer will not install the previous versions.
Any suggestions?

For that, I really have no idea. Is there a DirectX directory that you can modify?

You can always download the updates manually if you want to ensure the files are installed. Download details: DirectX Redist (August 2009)
