I think it should be a dll file you download and you put it in C:\WINDOWS\system32.

Try that but I am not sure if I am totally right.

16-11-2008, 18:49
Thanks but thats the thing i do not know where C:\WINDOWS\system32 is in my computer. (i got vista)
the thing wat error it is called is d3dx9_37.dll .

I will go as detailed as possible. Just close everything down.

1. Then right click on the file you have downloaded and a menu should appear
2. On that menu you should see an option called "Extract here"
3. Left click on that
4. Then you should see a new file appear on the screen
5. That is the file you need to put in the location
6. So go to Start->Run
7. Type in C:\WINDOWS\system32
8. Click confirm
9. A window should appear with loads of files and folders
10. Go back to where you have the file you downloaded
11. Right click on the extracted file and not the downloaded one
12. Choose "Cut" from the menu that appears
13. Go back to the window where all those files and folders were (system32 place)
14. Right click on a blank place in there
15. From the menu that appears choose paste
16. Then close everything

That should work now. Let me know if you have any more problems. :)

Is this right.
Go on winrar extract d3dx9_37.dll to downloads
I go on downloads
cut the file d3dx9_37.dll
and paste it into window.system32

You may need to reboot.

16-11-2008, 19:46
Reboot and post back if it worked or not.

It would be easier to download and install directX as that dll file is part of the directX engine.

16-11-2008, 19:56

Go into task manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc at the same time.
Then go to the processes tab.
And you should see an fm.exe one.
Right click on that and choose end process.
Confirm and exit
Now try starting FM09.
