"d3dx9_33.dll was not found" Help!

Postby ruthielmoore » Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:43 pm

Hi people,

I downloaded King's Bounty on my new Win7 64-bit laptop. While brand new, it just has the stock Intel graphics accelerator.. no fancy video card. When I tried to launch the game I got this error: d3dx9_33.dll was not found
I was afraid at first that it was a limitation of my video card. But actually the solution was very simple-- install DirectX.
Apparently the distribution doesn't install DirectX itself, even though the game requires it. Just a heads up for this game, If you know where can i get the file that not found please tell me.

King's Bounty was released in 1990 for DOS while DirectX wasn't released until late 1995 at earliest. You may want to try using a DOS emulator as in example Sim City Classic's terrain editor did not work unless I used DOSBox. Even Intel's graphics can handle very basic 3D for older games in the late 90s such as the first Unreal Tournament.
