  1. Installed the game, but when I try to open, it pops up “The code execution cannot proceed because D3DX9_27.DLL was not found.”

    How can I fix it? Thanks!!

  2. Alright so I’m having trouble getting the game started. So I downloaded it, extracted it out, and installed it. The menu came up and from then I couldn’t play the game even after the update. It won’t start from the menu. Is anyone else having this problem?

  3. Works great, on my desktop I now have “BFME desktop” and “BFME” using BFME desktop makes the resolution unplayable, if I use “BFME” it’s playable but the resolution is pretty bad bu at least I can see everything and play without any issues. The reason I mention this is because it is written under the “how to play on windows” and I’m confused about the “In this case” part… is there another option to avoid all of this or…???
