Hi loquacious,

When you installed the game, is there an option to install DirectX? If so, make sure you allow it to do so.

Try this - Download details: DirectX 9.0c - End-User EULAs. As you can see, this is the specific 9.0c file.

Let me know.

Yeah, that was a wrong file I linked to. You could try this file again....

The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime provides updates to 9.0c and previous versions of DirectX — the core Windows® technology that drives high-speed multimedia and games on the PC.

Also, just to be sure, once you install the DX files, reboot the system. No, it shouldn't be required, but...

Let me know
