directx 9 on windows vista

  kuffdam 19:49 06 May 2007

got windows vista and want to install Civ4. when i install Civ4 asks if i want to install directx 9.0c. now, i know vista uses direct x 10 but if i don't install directx 9 the game won't work. can i install dx 9.0c without it interfering with dx 10?

any help appreciated

vista has its own version of dx9 that runs alongside dx10 so dx9c is not needed.

yeah i read about that but it seems that Civ4 is looking for D3DX9_26.dll file rather than using the vista version of dx9. i've read on other forums that people have just copied this dll into the relvant folder and it works. could this cause other issues?
