The program can't start because d3d9.dll is missing from your computer
I installed Visual Studio 2013 last night and today trying to load Skype or any game fails with this message.
- I've run dxdiag and no problems are being reported
- I've download the DirectX web installer but when I run it - it refuses to run installation because "DirectX has determined that a newer or equivalent version of DirectX has been installed already. No installation is necessary"
- I've tried Windows Restore to several snapshots before Visual Studio got installed, but all fail
d3dx9.dll I find 52 occurences dotted around Steam, System32 and SysWOW64
Can anyone help? I'd really not reinstall my whole system for one file :(
