    Default d3dx9_41.dll was not found when loading editor

    First of all, I'd like to say that this is the first time I've ever had a problem with a new release of Football Manager, so well done so far SI.

    Unfortunately, for reasons I cannot fathom, the game itself and the editor wont load.

    I get the following error:

    "This application has failed to start because d3dx9_41.dll was not found."

    I have installed the 10.1 patch and has tried reinstalling FM twice. Direct X has been installed from the CD and computer restarted.

    No change.

    Any ideas SI?

    Incidentally, just noticed that the game itself will also not load!

    Try getting Direct X from here and installing: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    I had the same problem and solved it by downloading this: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...shtml?d3dx9_41 and following the instructions provided.

    Thanks Glenn, that has helped.

    The game is now loading and (although slowly) so is the editor! Bingo!

    :-)

    EDIT: Sorry about the triple post, site seemed to hang on me there, not sure what happened!
