Hello Experts,

One of my servers isn't launching a critical application after a clean install of the new version.  I get the following error message:

This application has failed to start because d3dx9_43.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

The application is 3ds Max 2012
The OS is Windows XP Pro x64

From what little searching I've done, the problem is with a corrupted DirectX upgrade?

Anyone have a fix for this?

My solution directly applies to repairing/updating DirectX and links to Microsoft.

After further reading, the solutions given were not "recommended solutions", especially the solution to use a third party website to download a DLL.  That idea was fraught with peril.
