The "red Box" Says It Supports Win 8; D3Dx9_33.dll Error



Per the box I bought at Fry's (in Los Angeles), it supports "Windows 8, Professional (32- or 64-bit)". post-113284-0-08267400-1371624283_thumb.jpg Sorry for the tough-to-read scan. That's not to say it installed perfectly/properly. When I loaded it and chose to create a DVD, I received an error about D3DX9_33.DLL not being installed and telling me to reinstall the product. Entering D3DX9_33.DLL in the Knowledge Base resulted in 13 pages of answers, not one even mentioning the DLL. On a whim, I entered D3DX9_33 (no extension) and the first two responses DID address it, albeit in CREATOR products, not this one! On the install DVD, there's a DX directory with, at the bottom, a setup pgm EXE that did install the missing DLL. No thanks to the Help system.
