    Went shuffling through all my chars to get the valentines day gift on my shard, and one particular character crashes the game every single time I try to log him in. I last logged him in around the holidays for the thanksgiving and halloween items, and had no issues. All six of my other chars have logged in with no problems. I use the classic client. Is it possible that I've locked down/secured something in the spot he was last in, and that's why he can't log in? I know he was last logged out in my house. Five days ago I posted this in Tech forums, and got one response. Brought it up here in hopes that more see it and I can resolve this.

    I tried installing and running the EC to see if I could log in that way, but after 3 complete installs, it refuses to work. Tried installing as admin and not, neither worked. Every time I run the patcher to start the game, I wait for the update, click "play" and either nothing at all happens, or I get a System Error message: "The program can't start because d3dx9_34.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem." Three complete installs and I keep getting this message! 45 minutes killed each time I try to install the game, I need Help Please! :wall:

    I think you can install it with the installer of UO but it is not so strict implemented as it was. Also many people also i copy it from backup drive when reinstalling the pc and then if fresh installed you have to reinstall dx9.
