    Check if you have the latest DirectX version in your computer (Start -> Run... type DXDIAG in the field. Now locate DirectX Version:. Is it older than DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) ? If yes than download the latest at:

    Note: your Windows OS copy should be legal

    http://3d-analyze.softwareandgames.com if the issue is relative to directx and your not using steam, use this program messing around with the ticks activating directx9 until u can get it to work (or dx8 if 9 doesnt work)

I Have found the problem!!!!! I was having the same problem as you guys... You shoud go to start-run-in open box type DXDIAG then go to Display, press Test DirectDraw. When you have finished press Test Direct3d. When you have finished run the game. I have done this and it worked.

To fix it go to microsoft and download the lates directX9 ordorectX10 and install it to be sure that it will work.
After that the game is still doesn't work. But..go to start->run->andtype "dxdiag" to see dialog box for directX settings.
On the "display" go and check your DirectX Features - DirectDrawAccelaration and Direct3D Accelaration.
If they are disabled, you have just to anable them and and test if they workproperty. And thats all. Enjoy the game.

D3dx9_37 is missing?


This is due to the fact that your Direct X 9 version is either out of date or just plain missing.
The d3dx9_37.dll file is one of many similar files contained in the DirectX software collection. Because DirectX is used by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs these errors usually show up when using these programs.

To fix this it is as simple of downloading the latest version of DX9.
Click here to go to FileHippo and get the June 2010 version. Click on the green arrow to the right to start the download.

I've had many people ask me "how is this possible when I've just installed Windows Vista or even Windows 7." The simple answer is that when you install Windows Vista for example it ONLY installes Direct X10 components and when you install Windows 7 it ONLY installs DirectX 10 or 11. Therefore you will need to seperately download and install DirectX 9 in order to play games in DirectX 9 solve this problem.

If installing the latest version of DirectX 9 doesn't solve the problem then do the following:
  • Explore the game CD you are trying to use and find the DirectX 9 version the game or program came with. Install this version.
  • Uninstall the game or software and then re-install it. One of the files associated with d3dx9_37 may have been overwritten or deleted by accident.
  • You could try extracting the d3dx9_37 from the DirectX 9 package and placing it where it needs to be.
  • Re-install or update your graphics card drivers.

Major Direct3D Rendering Error


I would recommend to optimize your PC. Sometimes this problem occurs due to missing dll files or corrupt registry. Use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix this problem. After scanning download & install latest DirectX from microsoft website.

It keeps saying when i try to play one of my games: Initialization Error: Direct3D renderer creation error: Creation failed:


Hello,

The first thing you should do is check on the installation CD/DVD game on for any readme.txt or
troubleshooting.txt files.

The readme.txt file should list the graphics cards that the game is compatible with. Make sure that your graphics card is compatible with the game.

Also the same file may tell you which version of DirectX the game requires.

Make sure you have the version of DirectX required installed. Most games have the DirectX libraries needed in a folder on the game's installation CD/DVD.

Also there is a program in C:\Windows\System32 called dxdiag.exe you can run this to diagnose your DirectX setup and your machine.

Hope this helps.

Video card or driver doesn't support the required fixed-function texture blend operations. DirectX 7 rendering path will not be available. Video card or driver doesn't support direction lights in...


Hello, the problem seem to be related to the video card you're currently using, See if you have an integrated video card: a hint to find out is to see behind your computer if the monitor connection is on a side of the back panel is probable you have an incompatible integrated video system, you can solve this problem by buying and installing a compatible video card as any Nvidia or ATI card, Call an IT professional and ask for some advice on what card you should buy and install to make these problems disappear, also ask him/her to install it for you.

Have a nice day, and If you have any other questions you can come back and reply.

PD: If you still want to buy and install it yourself ask me again and I'll help you.

Good morning, I was given a 3 pack (Marine SharpShooter Trilogy as a gift, & was deployed (Militarily) soon afterwards, so I hadn't set it up on my computer. I am home now, & loaded the 1st disc...


It is a video compatibility error. First make sure you have DirectX 10. Download HERE.

The error message: 'Could Not Initialize Renderer' means that your video card does not fully support the features required by Marine Sharpshooter II (Hardware T&L Not Supported)

Now we need to talk about your video chip. You haven't listed what you have for video in your computer so I can only give you general help. Try the following and if you need more help post back with you specific video chip make and model.

1. download / install 3D-Analyze (http://www.3dfxzone.it/files?object=3dfx&objid=100)
2. select (.exe) program
3. check Emulate HW TnL
4. check Force SW TnL Caps
5. click run

You may end up having to get a DirectX 9.0c compliant card from Nvidia (Geforce) or AMD/ATI (Radeon)

I got problem with d3dx9_29dll was not found.anyone could help?


There are quite a few different ways that d3dx9_29.dll errors may show up on your PC. Some of the more common d3dx9_29.dll errors are listed here:
  • "D3DX9_29.DLL Not Found"

  • "File d3dx9_29.dll not found"

  • "Error while starting game executable - couldn't load DLL file d3dx9_29.dll."

  • "D3dx9_29.dll is missing"

  • "D3DX9_29.DLL is missing. Replace D3DX9_29.DLL and try again."

  • "D3dx9_29.dll not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

  • "Missing component d3dx9_29.dll"

  • "This application failed to start because d3dx9_29.dll was not found!"
D3dx9_29.dll errors usually appear when a software program, most often a game, is started. Occasionally, d3dx9_29.dll errors will display after a game is loaded but right before the game begins. Unlike many other dll errors which can have complicated causes and fixes, d3dx9_29.dll issues are caused in one way or another by a single issue - some kind of problem with Microsoft DirectX. The d3dx9_29.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, d3dx9_29.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.

Resolution

Important Note: Do not, under any circumstances, download the d3dx9_29.dll DLL file individually from any "DLL download site." There are a number of different reasons that downloading DLLs from these sites are never a good idea.

Note: If you've already downloaded d3dx9_29.dll from one of those DLL download sites, remove it from wherever you put it and continue with the following steps.

1. Restart your computer if you haven't yet done so.

The d3dx9_29.dll error might be a fluke or one-time issue and a simple restart could clear it up completely. It's unlikely this will fix the problem, but restarting is always a good first troubleshooting step.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX 9. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX 9 will fix the d3dx9_29.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX 9 without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: Are you a Windows Vista user with DirectX 10? Your game or program may still need DirectX 9 files to run properly so give the installation a try. Don't worry, both versions of DirectX can be run side by side in Windows Vista.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the d3dx9_29.dll error you're receiving, look 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.

4. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something may have happened to the files in the program that work with d3dx9_29.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

5. Restore the d3dx9_29.dll file from DirectX 9. If the above standard troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your d3dx9_29.dll error, try extracting the d3dx9_29.dll individually from the DirectX 9 package.

6. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

Pc game not compatible with my DirectX


This game is for Windows 95/98/ME. And you dont specify what is your problem. The game doesn't install? Or after installation, it doesn't run? What exactly happens?

Anyway, if you're having problems running the game, you can try to:

If you're on XP or Vista:
- Install latest Direct-X (9 or 10, according to your OS, on Win98 and ahead you can install up to Direct-X 9): http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en

- If on XP/Vista, right-click on the game EXE and set compatibility mode (select properties, then compatibility, and on "compatibility mode" select to run the program as Windows 98 (try all options to see if it runs on any) - and try also the checkboxes below, to run the game in 256 color mode, on 640x480 resolution and to disable "visual themes".

Also update your graphics driver to the latest version available.
