When I downloaded the Free Technology Demo version and opened it, an error message displayed saying that the d3dx9_42.dll is missing. It also suggest me to reinstall the app. When I reinstalled it, the same message displayed. How can I fix it?

I just checked the game again, and the XINPUT1_3.dll is missing too :(

How do you update directx9?
The page allows me to reinstall Windows 10, which I did. I tried again but still won't work.

Rextus, when you first posted "error message displayed saying that the d3dx9_42.dll is missing", did you have Win 10 at that time?

You would think Win 10 would be up to date on Directx, since it Directx12. If Sneak Peek still asking for the file, could Google d3dx9_42.dll , download it and put file in your Sneak Peek folder and see if that will work.

I have not done the upgrade to Win 10 yet. Still using Win 7 64bit.
Flatout Joint, where the mods were.

i5 2500, 8GB, Nvidia 660 960, SB Recon, Win 10 or Win7 64bit, DFGT Wheel

Seems like MS has changed the URL that previously pointed to DirectX 9 download to point to Windows 10. :O Here's an URL that looks more promising: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34429
