error: d3dx9_40.dll is missing, try reinstalling the application
This is a common error produced when you need to update your DirectX9 drivers. You can do this directly from Microsoft here:

Here is the direct link from microsoft:

I've e-mailed Dave about this problem and we tried to fix to no avail. I still receive this message and am running directx 9.0c which should run PWX. Drivers are updated but still getting this error message. Any suggestions from the forum??

which windows are you running? when was your last format? i assume you tried installing the DX at least twice?
also if you're on vista or higher did you run the DX install with "Run as Admin"?

I'm on Windows XP Home Edition 5.1 build 2600. I've been told not to uninstall directx in order to reinstall. My graphics card is a Geforce FX5500, which has up to date drivers and running directx 9.0c.
