If you install any of the games released in 2004 or later, you may run into a problem. If the problem concerns the d3dcompiler_46 file.dll, the system will issue a pop-up notification. Most often, it is a dialog box that tells you that a file with the appropriate name is missing and prompts you to reinstall the application.
This recommendation is given by the system by default. As practice shows, reinstalling the game usually does not help. What to do in such a case? Read the instructions and you will be able to fix the problem quickly enough.
Here’s how to fix the error with this file:
- The recommended, relatively simple option is to download the DirectX installer
- An option that will save time is to download the dll as a separate file.
The DirectX 9 installation program checks and fixes the missing files by itself-you don’t need to do anything. If you decide to manually download d3dcompiler_46.dll for Windows, it will need to be copied to the system directory. The address may vary for different versions of the operating system (7, 8, 10), 32 – and 64-bit systems. Make sure that you copy the dynamic link library to the correct directory.
If you downloaded the DLL as a separate file and placed it in the correct Windows directory, the problem with running the application should disappear. If you have problems with other DirectX 9 dynamic-link libraries, download and reinstall the entire Software package.
