How to get d3dx9_42.dll?
Brother is having problems loading the game (and the forums, thus the reason I'm posting) because he's apparently missing the file. This is a DirectX problem as I'm aware, but I can't seem to locate how to update DirectX for him. He tried doing a manual install of it, but the game still isn't recognizing that he has it.
Is there any way to update DirectX for him? Tried looking it up, but can't find a direct link that'll just scan and update for him.
You can download the latest direct x from microsoft.
It's also in the Civ5 installation folder
c:\program files\Steam\steamapps\common\civ5\DirectX\setup.ex e
