If you open a command prompt (Start menu, All programs, Accessories) then type:

Code:
dir /s C:\D3DX9_43.dll

and press Enter, what do you get? When I try it here (also on x64 Windows) I get:

Code:
Directory of C:\Windows\System32

26/05/2010  12:41         2,401,112 D3DX9_43.dll
               1 File(s)      2,401,112 bytes

Directory of C:\Windows\SysWOW64

26/05/2010  12:41         1,998,168 D3DX9_43.dll
               1 File(s)      1,998,168 bytes

I'd guess you have a rogue version of d3dx9_43.dll somewhere. Note that the dir /s command can take a surprisingly long time to complete. It can take over a minute if your C: drive has a lot of stuff on it.

Incidentally, when XBMC refers to C:\Windows\system32 it actually means C:\Windows\SysWOW64. In x64 Windows the SysWOW64 directory contains the 32 bit files, and 32 bit apps have any requests to system32 redirected to SysWOW64.
