Note: Children of the Nile: Enhanced Edition requires a DirectX 9.0c redistributable from April 2006 or later.
...however, I have applied the v1.3 patch to my installation of CotN, and am now getting the "cannot find d3dx9_33.dll" error, even though I have the DirectX August 2006 redistributable version currently installed!??
Have re-ran directx_aug2006_redist.exe, even checked the C:\WINDOWS\DirectX.log file to ensure it worked ok (as expected just concluded no files changed). As mentioned in the Known issues in the Enhanced Edition thread, could upgrade to the June 2008 version of DX, but am reluctant as Microsoft have a long history of so-called updates actually breaking more things than fixing (and all my other programs are working perfectly as is).
Am left wondering if the stated requirement of needing "April 2006 or later" version of DX is correct? Perhaps it does need to be a later version?
