I have downloaded and installed the demo correctly but whenever I go in and try to play it the screen goes black and an error comes up saying "The application has failed to start because d3d_x9_29.ddl was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." Now i'm pretty sure this might be a Direct X problem, but i'm also pretty sure that I already have the latest version of Direct X (Direct X 9.0). And if I do have to update it then I don't know how (usually in whatever game you install, an update of Direct X that works comes with it, but the Battlefield 2142 Demo doesn't). I'm really clueless here. Can someone please help? :confused:

This was sent to the forums you will get more attention in. You need to update your dx driver to dx9.0c instead of just using 9.0 . This should solve your issues.
