DirectX Error (missing d3dx9_27.dll) Launching CWE Client


When you run the patcher (UruLauncher.exe) you get an error message similar to the following even if DirectX 9.0c (or later) is already installed:

UruExplorer.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This application has failed to start because d3dx9_27.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Although DirectX 9.0c has been installed, it is probably from an old installer which did not copy files that the current game build expects to be installed. Please update DirectX using Microsoft's DirectX Web Installer:
