I just tried to download DirectX 9.0c at the MS website, after several attempts I gave up. Kept getting the same results, "DirectX 9.0c fails to load properly". From what I see it happens during the .dll series of files. Does not give me any details, just says did not load properly. Im trying to use the new AOE 3 game. Required DX 9.0 to get it to work. Please help, was a gift for my wife for X-mas. Thanks! Warb the Snap!
