Windows 7 and installing Video games - Info requested
I attempted to install LOST Via Domus on my Laptop using Windows 7 - 64 BIT --- NO GO ---
When I tried to run the game this error message appeared,
"The program can't start because d3dx9_35.dll is missing from your computer. Try re-installing the program to fix this problem"
Hmm, interesting statement, so I attempted to re-install with no luck and was wondering if this is a common issue with games and Windows 7 - 64 bit.
Thanks - LoWang

The dll "d3dx9_35.dll" is part of Direct X 9, maybe the game detected a newer version of Direct X (v10) when it was beeing installed and skipped the file? You can try to install Direct X 9 again either from the game disk (Many disks will have a folder called Direct X with the install files in there) or you can download the install from the Microsoft website. Alternatively you can just download the dll and place it in the directory you installed the game (But be carefull some the the "Download dll" sites are dodgy).

Try running the game .exe in Compatability mode - this can sometimes force the game to use the version of DX assosciated with the OS you set in compatibility mode.
