PC Games on Vista

I have a new PC Compaq Presarion Dual Proccessor Vista.
Today I bought a game called Resident Evil 4. When installed, it says "This application has failed to start because d3dx9_30.dll was not found" I reinstalled it twice with no luck. I even run on my XP Laptop and it worked on there. So i assume it has something to do with Vista or...I read the back and It says Windows XP, 2000 ONLY.
Is there any program that will alllow me to run on Vista? or is there something else I need to download?

Thanks in advance :)

Pity the "search forum" is not working. It details many problems with games not running on Vista because the drivers for them are not available yet.

There is a fix that is required to play this game on Vista,

Resident Evil 4
(Requires d3dx9_30.dll to be placed in "capcom/resident evil 4" folder. click here) (32-bit)
