A few days ago I reinstalled my video card drivers (from ATI) and downloaded the August DXSDK Update. It installed perfectly, but when I started up my game, it gave an error, saying it couldn't find d3dx9d_26.dll. Finding an old GDnet post on this topic, I changed my linker from linking d3dx9d.lib to d3dx9.dll, and recompiled. It said it couldn't find d3d9.lib. Reinstalling the sdk or even the runtime doesn't work. About half-way through, it says "DirectX setup failed to copy a file", and exits. The wierd part is, BF2, HL2, and most other DX stuff still works. However, some code samples from the book I'm using don't work. Perhaps MSVC++ is setup wrong? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, I'm at a dead standstill.

In your MSVC++ goto Tools->Options
Then select Projects->VC++ Directories on the left side of the options window.
Now from the "Show directories for" dropdown control, select the "Libraries files" item.
now, make sure the path for your DX libs directory is listed there, if not, add it. (Altough DirectX SDK installion wizard should do that for you)
