Question 
Hi All,

When installing XBMC on my fresh install of Windows 7 x64 I receive the following error:

The Procedure entry point D3DXLoadSurfaceFromMemory could not be located in the dynamic library d3dx9_43.dll

Please help.

What video card are you using? Also try opening a command prompt and typing:

Code:
dir /S C:\d3dx9_43.dll

and see what the output is. For comparison 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'm using an AMD Radeon HD 6800 and my output is:

That looks fine. You could try temporarily renaming the copy of d3dx9_43.dll in C:\Users\Home\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\ so something random to make sure it isn't being loaded.

I'm stuck then. If you would like to upload C:\Windows\SysWOW64\d3dx9_43.dll somewhere I can download it I'll compare it with my file here in case it's got corrupted.

Actually, one quick thought. On rereading your original post, is it the installer that's falling over or does XBMC install but then not run? Also where did you download the installer?

I ran into this thread looking for a solution to my problem. the installer wont finish installing the program and I get the error that the same .dll file is missing. I am lost.

go to http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-fi...l?d3dx9_43

select 32 bit version in manual dll tab download and copy to C:\Windows\sysWOW64 folder

This worked for me
on a windows 7 home premium 64 bit

hope this helps
