d3dx9_42.dll is either not designed to run on Windows
If you're having the TESV.exe - Bad image d3dx9_42.dll error like my girl friend was; the solution is found http://"[url=http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2970970"

I'm not very familiar with Win 7 but one thing you may need to check is the location of the DirectX .dll files that need to be deleted.

These may be located differently for Win 7 vis-a-vis Windows XP (which is what I thought you were running).

The files on Win7-64 are stated to reside in

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\

rather than

C:\Windows\system32\

I found a post on the Steam forums regarding a similar issue. Although the game is different (Skyrim) the problem seems the same as does the potential solution -

I downloaded Skyrim The Elder Scrolls V from Steam yesterday and had a similar problem. When I clicked play nothing happened.

After a lot of digging around on forums it appeared it was something to do with Directx and an application extension XINPUT1_3.dll. Anyway to cut a long story short I found this on the DC Universe Online support forums, http://forums.station.sony.com/dcuopc/posts/list.m?topic_id=5948 , and rysohl's post about halfway down worked for me (I didn't delete the file I moved it to a memory stick just in case) - anyway here it is, as follows

"Don't know if anyone is still having this issue, but for the record... I got this error after installing on my new system running Windows 7 64-bit. The issue is that even though it says the problem is in the C:\Windows\system32 directory, the file causing problems was C:\Windows\SysWOW64\xinput1_3.dll. I deleted this file and reinstalled DirectX, which replaced the file and it ran fine after that. Hope that helps anyone else who comes across this issue..."

I've seen dozens of people asking for help with this error across the net with no solution, and I'm just spreading the word, so if you'll excuse me, I have some more boards to post this on.

(Sorry about the formatting, this post if formatted for SPUF, not SPUD. SPUF forever!)

Sounds like this could be added to the help sticky.

Who? Bethesda, EA and other devs. The DLL is installed with dx10 and what you said seems like some stupid dig at a person using outdated tech to run a modern game without knowing it has nothing to do with the user, but I'll just take it as an honest question wondering why a dev team would use it; and I'm not certain why they would.
