View Full Version : Do not have d3dx9_31.dll file
22nd Dec 2009, 8:42 PM
I do not seem to have the "d3dx9_31.dll" required for package files to work with WA. I downloaded a copy from the internet but I am not sure if I should use the downloaded file. I had also checked in both Program Files/Electronic Arts/ The Sims 3/Game/Bin and Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 World Adventures/Game/bin. I am wondering why I do not have the d3dx9_31.dll file to begin with.

Yes, use the downloaded file, it doesn't come with the game.
