  2. Getting Error message " d...dx...dll missing" when installing 3D Games [fixed]

    Original title: DirectX Problems

    Hello everyone!

    I´ve downloaded World of Tanks (3D Tank Game). It needs DirectX 9.0c, but I have DirectX 11.2. I know, that I can download DirectX 9.0c at the microsoft page and run both versions of DirectX. But at
    the installation, it says, there is an intern system error. And gives me two .log files: dxerror.log and directx.log. In dxerror.log there is:

    Thank you for your attention!

    Regards

    I´ve found the way out!

    Search in the Internet for your problem.

    Note: Do not just download the file! There is a risk of viruses and its not helpful. If you find something with "regedit" or something like that, you are on the right way. It worked for me,
    but I can´t remember how I did it.

    If you still have problems please comment below
