I think my problem was covered here

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=1451528

Unfortunately I do not understand the solution, when I try to run the game I get this message, This application has failed to start because d3dx9_26.dll was not found.

I downloaded this file:-
download d3dx9_26.dll from
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/pop.php?d3dx9_26

I do not understand what to do with it, would someone mind giving me a completely idiot proof explanation of what to do?

I have attached my DxDiag text file

Many thanks

Steve

Many thanks Mark

Downloaded the file and installed it - I still get the same error message :(

Do I have to disable Direct X 10? Any other ideas?

Many thanks

Steve

:), ok a reinstall and rerunning the file from Marc's link got rid of the direct x 9 error message, now I get another one :(

UFO requires a graphics card that supports vertex and pixel shaders to run!

Does that mean I need a new(different) graphics card or will an updated driver do it?

Many thanks

Steve
