d3dx9_42.dll File not found


After installing Assassin's Creed Brotherhood I receive the error message d3dx9_42.dll was not found. How can I fix this problem?


This issue can be fixed by manually updating DirectX via the install file located on the game disc:

1. Start by inserting your game disc into your DVD drive.

2. Click the start button in the bottom left corner of your screen.

3. Click computer and right click the DVD-ROM drive and choose open.

4. Double click the Support and Direct X folder.

5. Right-click the "DXSETUP" file and select "Run" (or Run as Administrator if you have that option).
