Already update to current DirectX, still receiving errors

Question Info

Last updated September 22, 2018 Views 1,194 Applies to:


  1. When exactly do you get the error message?
  2. Is it while installing the game or while launching the game?

The ddraw.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, ddraw.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.    

Since you have updated the current version of DirectX, and still you are facing the same issuelook for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with ddraw.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.
