It seems you are installing the Yahoo messenger using the Offline Installer. Don't just reinstall it, but uninstall the whole yahoo messenger packages, even from the registry and reinstall it after your computer is restarted.

First uninstall the yahoo messenger and then download and run this program (click here). Open the link, click the "Download Now" button, wait for about 20 seconds while the countdown timer runs, and then click "Download Now File" link once the countdown timer resets to 0. After it's downloaded and installed, close all the applications, open the program and click "Run Cleaner" and proceed forward by pressing yes (if you are asked), wait for few seconds and after it's done, click "Registry" on the left pane with blue icon. Now on the right pane, click "Scan for issues" then wait for another few minutes/seconds until the scanning progress reaches 100%, the click "Fix Selected Issues" > "No" > "Fix all selected issues" > "Ok" > "Close". After it's done, restart your computer and install the yahoomessenger (download yahoo messenger online isntaller) That should fix your problem with the yahoo messenger. If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

When downloading yahoo messenger, why do I get an error that says Yahoo did not finish installing because there is a missing component?it says d3d9.dll was not found


Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the d3d9.dll not found error.

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

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX10 and DirectX9 files but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

D3d9 dll error to download yahoo messenger


D3D9 stands for DirectX version 9 (as far as I know) So i would assume that you do not have DirectX installed.
This should be the link to the correct DirectX 9 Download

How do i fix: "Failed to get address for D3DPERF


YOu need to update your DirectX. If still the problem exists then use a system utility software to repair your windows corrupt files, registry files and fix different operating system errors. I would recommend you to use system utility software RegInOut. Hope it works for you.

I install today the least version of messenger11. after i install i cannot open my yahoo messger... it said cannot d3d9.dl cannot locate... i already retry to install but its the same problem what should...


If you've already downloaded d3d9.dll from one of those DLL download sites, remove it from wherever you put it and continue with these steps.
  1. Restart your computer if you haven't yet.

    The d3d9.dll error might be a fluke and a simple restart could clear it up completely.

  2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the d3d9.dll not found error.

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

    Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX10 and DirectX9 files but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

  3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the d3d9.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 might have happened to the program files that work with d3d9.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

  5. Restore the d3d9.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your d3d9.dll error, try extracting the d3d9.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable 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.
Applies ToThe d3d9.dll error message could apply to any program that utilizes Microsoft DirectX, most commonly video games. Any of Microsoft's operating systems since Windows 98 may be effected by d3d9.dll and other DirectX issues. This includes Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.
