I am trying to install Desktop Central Agent and every time I get this error message when I attempt to start the program. I have spent so much time resolving this matter. I need your help. Thanks for any assistance.

This application has failed to start because d3dx9_43.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
