    Barely any of my games will recognize Vista as an operating system. I have
    tried running programs as admin and as XP under compatibility tab. Getting
    missing d3dx9_25.dll error, downloaded copy, now Vista cant find it. My Pc is
    E-machine W3609 3.33 GHZ 512 ram Nvidia GEforce 7300 gs and wish I could have
    my XP back, or the update that fixes all the problems I'm having trying to
    run my games. I couldnt even load intellepoint 4.1 because of known
    compatibility errors. Please help.

  2. You might try installing DX9.0c on your PC (I know Vista has it, well
    DX9.0L, but sometimes it needs to be installed to work correctly). You
    should have it on one of your install CD's.

    What games are you trying to run that won't run?

  3. This file "d3dx9_25.dll" is a part of the updated DX9.0c end-user runtimes.
    It's a part of the regular DX9.0c. Games like FEAR and Battlefield 2142 use
    that update. If you are fresh installing the game, you should have been
    prompted to install that Aug 2005 or Oct 2006 update. You can get this
    update, which is updated every 2 months from here

  9. What kind of crazy installs do you guys have that requires this stuff ? I
    did the standard install of Vista, Applied the End user run time updates and
    off I went. I'm not oppose to doing work around fixes, but you have to ask,
    what's wrong with my system that I have to do a work around fix and is it
    going to bite me in the ass later ?

    And when you say AOW doesn't work under Vista64. Are you referring to the
    error message that says it's not compatible or can you not get it to run at
    all ? I get a pop-up about the game, but it runs and I was able to kick off
    a skirmish against the computer. I don't know about on-line play.

    Re: This file "d3dx9_25.dll" is a part of the updated DX9.0c end-userruntimes.

    Hi dale,

    This type of problem usually occurs when setup d3dx9_25.dll is missing from your computer. This dll file can be downloaded from here.
    http://www.d3dx9.net/download-missing-d3dx9_25-dll/
    Download it and then extract the downloaded zip file to the Windows System32 folder, which is located in Windows Drive.
