Eddie, you didn't post back but, don't do bad things read through these.

I think you probably got that game through a torrent. Could be wrong but, anyway don't screw up your system with dll. help files.

Sorry I was offline; but I transferred it from my old computer. The copy on that HDD was from the disk. I didn't use a torrent my friend has the disk but it's hard to get a hold of it now that I live 900 miles away from him.

Find and copy the dll from your old computer. Also search to see if it is already on the new computer and just not registered. However, copying software from one computer to another without using the install procedure seldom works. You leave out the items in the system registry and things do not work. Finding and registering this dll may only lead you to the next one of many to have to deal with.

i had copied everything directly to an external HDD I'll have a hard time getting it off of the old computer because mysister has it and I'm sure you can understand how that goes with things yougive to a sibling.

I had to download an active x from Microsoft and another D3DX9_26.dll to get it to work
