So I downloaded a BFME2 file and I set it up on my XP computer. My friend, with Windows 7 64-bit, also downloaded this, did the same things as me, and it works on his computer. Now I'm trying to walk my other friend through it, who also has Windows 7 64-bit, and he gets an error message when trying to run the game that says,"This application has failed to start because d3dx9_27.dll was not found. Re-installing this application may fix this problem." I tried to download Directx 9 but it says that it's not compatible with his computer. Is there anyway to fix this?

I think he needs to update DirectX on his system.

How to Run a Program in Compatibility Mode in Windows 7

Also DirectX 11 is used on Windows 7 - This will not always suit XP programs.
