Hi,

This file is part of DirectX Runtime June 2010, which is a optional update that a lot of games need.

This is a self extracting package. It will extract after double clicking on it so be sure to note the location where you\it extracted.

Then open the folder and double click DXSETUP.

I encountered this issue when trying to run Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II. I think that it will occur for various different games.  I'm using Windows 10.

  1. When did you receive the error?
    When trying to play a game.

  2. Which version of Microsoft Visual C++ is installed on the computer?
    I didn't install any version of this. I have a clean install of Windows 10.

  3. Have you made any changes on the computer prior to the issue?
    No. I have installed all updates.

Running the command sfc /scannow resulted in the message Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Installing the DirectX Runtime June 2010 as mentioned by @slance310 makes it possible to run this game. So it seems that Microsoft has not enabled Windows 10 to run DirectX 9 games...

This Solved all my problems after a re-Install of Windows 10. I had all my simulators/games installed on a separate drive so I wouldn't lose the install and progress. I ran into a boot problem and as said above re-installed windows 10. Upon creating shortcuts and testing each game I ran into a few games and  wouldn't start cause of various DXd3d_# error's. Consider the problem solved....Thank's slance310 for linking.

Which folder should I put it in? I am doing this for League of Legends.

Hi,

I don't know much about specific games... some may have different requirements...

I think that once the package has extracted, it will install to the System32 folder...

It's like a ZIP File... you just tell it where to extract to... just so you can find it...

Then install it like any other program...

I put mine in the Downloads folder along with the original file...
