ArmA2 Demo does not start - X3DAudio1_6.dll [SOLVED]

Postby Bikerpete » Thu Jun 25, 2009 10:49 pm

When I installed and started the ArmA2 demo, i got following message:

"ArmA2Demo.exe - Unable to Locate Component. This application has failed to start because X3DAudio1_6.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

my original message:
"Die Anwendung konnte nicht gestartet werden, weil X3DAudio1_6.dll nicht gefunden wurde. Neuinstallation der Anwendung könnte das Problem beheben."

Okay - the "X3DAudio1_6.dll" is part of Microsoft DirectX.

So whenever that message shows up, you have to reinstall DirectX.
Get it here:
DirectX-Endbenutzer-Runtimes Web Installer
Remember, that you have to use IE to get that genuine software check done :wink:

After updating DirectX, everything should work fine now!
