  1. Hi all

    Is it possible to get the games installed in D DRIVE to work after installing a new OS on C DRIVE?
    When i click on the game exe files it says: this application has failed to start because d3dx9_36.dll was not the app may fix this problem

    would save me alot of re-installing if anyone could help.

    No, I don't think so. You should try getting your save files, though.

    You have to reinstall the games, those games put things in the registry that need to be back there again.
