    after constantly trying to copy the file to every dirctory known to the
    game, and it still comes up with "This application has failed to start
    because d3dx9_26.dll was not found"

  2. I had this problem with HoMMV, it won't start complaining about
    d3dx9_25.dll. I've downloaded the file and put it into folder where game's
    executables are. Now, I'm not sure if I did following back then but did you
    try to register DLL with regsvr32.exe? Note that you'll need to do it from
    an elevated command prompt.

    regsvr32.exe c:\game folder path\d3dx9_25.dll

    umm.. that's because you need to copy the d2dx9_27.dll into
    C:\WINDOWS\system
