Minecraft is probably one of the best survival games I’ve ever played. To be honest, I had a version that I downloaded from torrents which I used to play, but when I discovered the discount offered by Steam, I decided to buy and play the official version. However, my first experience with it was not encouraging. After downloading and installing it, I received the d3dx9_42.dll cannot be found on your computer error message when I tried to launch it. I found this odd because I didn’t experience it with any of my previous Steam games. I checked out the game file’s integrity and there was no error, yet each time I attempted to launch the game I got the d3dx9_42.dll is missing error message.
After trying unsuccessfully to fix the issue, I realised the problem was not with the game, which means the issue had to be with my system. I started researching on Google for any information on the d3dx9_42.dll is missing error and discovered that the error occurs when any application in the system library d3dx9_42.dll is either damaged or corrupted. Being a popular library used by lots of programs makes it susceptible to virus attack, which is why it is easier for viruses to spread across the system quickly. However, the solution to this problem is quite straight forward. All you have to do is to download and install the library from https://fix4dll.com/d3dx9_42_dll and follow the installation instructions on the website.
