Assistance with SPORE

★★★ Newbie



I paid for and downloaded Spore but it doesn't seem to work on my computer. it's an Acer Aspire One netbook. 


The message I'm getting is that I'm missing a d3dx9 27.dll file or something like that. 

Can this either be fixed or can I load it onto a different computer. 


Thanks, Chris

Your question has already been answered. This is a error message from your DirectX that shows up of various ways, update your DirectX..
