I am struggling to play NFS: Most Wanted on my laptop. It has windows 7 and DirectX 11. But when I start NFS it says that
D3DX9_26.DLL is missing.
I used to play this game on my PC which had Windows XP. I just copied the NFS game from there.
One solution I found on googling is, download the missing file and keep it in system folder and it will work. But is this the only solution? Why can't NFS work with the DirectX11 dll? I have
D3DX9_41.dll in my system32 directory.
