I believe that it's DirectX that you either don't have or there is a problem with it. It's needed to play most Microsoft games and the latest version is available here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en. If you still have a problem just put d3dx9_25.dll into Google. There's a lot of places and instructions to download and install.

I have all these error messages alot of this ox8007005 and acess denied,i CANNOT DOWNLOAD nothing even in safe mode ,suggestion?


1. Click Start, Run, and input the following commands in the Run textbox: (you can make this simpler by copy/pasting one line at a time, then click OK after each one, then click Start, Run again and repeat with the next command)

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng1.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
regsvr32 wuweb.dll
regsvr32 wups2.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml2.dll
regsvr32 qmgr.dll
regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

You will receive a message stating the process succeeded after you input each command.

After that, visit the Windows Update site again. Is the issue resolved?

If the issue persists, the local Windows Update engine files may have been corrupted. I suggest you take the following steps to rename the corrupted files and see if that resolves the issue.

Step 2: Rename the temporary folders of Windows Update.
==================
This issue can occur if the temporary folders of Windows Update have been corrupted. You can refer to these steps to rename these folders. Be assured the folders will be created again when you visit the Windows Update site again.

1. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Run the following command in the opened window:

net stop wuauserv

2. Click Start, Run, type: %windir%\SoftwareDistribution
and press Enter to open the temporary folder of the Windows Update engine. Then, rename the following two subfolders:

DataStore
Download

For example, rename DataStore to DataStore-old, and Download to Download-old.

3. Click Start, Run, type: cmd and press Enter. Run the following command in the opened window:

net start wuauserv
Should say net service has started more help etc.
Click top right x and close the box.
After we rename the above folders, please restart the computer in normal mode and visit the Windows Update site again. Is the issue resolved?

Can not play flight simulator says d3drm.dll is not in vista


Is your game old? d3drm.dll is related to Direct 3D retained mode which is part of Microsoft's DirectX API, Direct 3D is very old (1997) and has been removed from Window's Vista, therefor creating the incompatability.

d3drm.dll as I have come to understand, was implemented in Windows XP, if you have a copy or know someone who uses XP you could try looking through :windowssystem32 folder for the d3drm.dll file and copying it to your own system32 directory.
If you don't have access to XP at all you could also try this link
http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/D/d3drm.dll/5.1.2600.0/download.html
You may wish to take precautions before downloading as downloads from an unknown site can always be risky.

If you have a copy of Windows XP, but you don't feel like messing with Vista's system directory or copying it didn't work, you could always try virtualization. Running a virtual copy of Windows XP along side Vista would allow you to run older games while running Vista.

Virtual Box is free and in my opion, easy to use virtualization software, you could try that or you could try vmware but that costs money.

Go to the following page on Microsoft’s website and select Continue, then Download. When prompted to Save or Open, select the Open option and follow the directions.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en

If this does not work, try Option 2.


Option 2:

Go to the following page on Microsoft’s website and select Download. When prompted to Save or Open, select the Save option and save it to a location on your hard drive.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=4B1F5D0C-5E44-4864-93CD-464EF59DA050&displaylang=en

When the file finishes downloading, double click on the file to run it. You will be prompted for a location to unpack the files to. It is recommend that you use something easy to remember such as:

C:\DirectX

Once the files are done unpacking, open My Computer and go to the folder the files were unpacked to (from the previous step). There should be a file in this folder called DXsetup.exe (or DXsetup). Double click this file and follow the instructions.


Once DirectX 9 is installed, your computer will need to reboot. After it has rebooted, you should be able to run Prison Tycoon 3.
