DCUO error: Cannot start due to d3dx10_41.dll missing

If you get the error pop up “The program can’t start because d3dx10_41.dll is missing from your computer” every time you try to launch the game, you should go to Microsoft web-site and download the full DirectX redist (about 100 meg) and run it. That should fix the error. This is the official response on the matter by one of the DCUO developers:

If the webinstaller version of DirectX isnt updating you correctly, try running the full redist from Microsoft. It will copy over all the directX files you need for XP, Vista, and W7. You can download it at www.microsoft.com/downloads/…91-50ceb6d8fa8d

    Hey, I’ve also got this error, so I downloaded DirectX from the Microsoft website, yet it says I already have a version that is up-to-date… But My game still wont play?
    My screen icon also is just a white paper with a box on it.
    It was fine before. Is this an error to do with installation?

    I’m not trying to run a game – I’m just trying to pick up my email. What’s going on?

  16. jagger13 says:

    Just go back to dc universe or in you browsers downloads and reinstall worked for me. dont delete or uninstall the game just reinstall when it prompts

  17. Qwertygiy says:

    Make sure that the computer user account you are installing the game under has administrator privileges! DirectX will fail to install rather than ask administrator permission when it attempts to install on a non-administrative account. Don’t worry, you don’t have to redownload DCUO, you just have to run the setup again on an admin account and let it properly install DirectX.

  20. Patrick says:

    guys download the file and place it were dc universe is /luanchpad and then luanch dc universe and it works

  21. Patrick says:

    it tricks it into thinking that the file is downloaded inside the game to play

  22. Patrick says:

    you might want to place the file in before you ever luanch the game
