First off, here's what I got (someone would probably ask for my specs): CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Wolfdale 2.53GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80571E7200 CPU Cooler: ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm MB: GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard RAM: OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPR8004GK Video Card: MSI NX8800GT 512M OC GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported HD: Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s DVD: SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model SH-S203B Case/PSU: RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black SECC STEEL ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply Monitor: Acer X193W+BD Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit Now...to the problem... I download the KR client from http://www.uoherald.com/kingdomreborn/gamefiles/index.php which takes about an hour even on a cable connection. That's one big zip file. I unzip it and launch the "setup.exe" file. Well, the first thing it tries to do is install Direct X 9, but of course I've already got Direct X 10 with Vista. So, it spits out an error saying it can't install Direct X 9 and I'm thinking, no biggie. Vista is just preventing it from doing so since I wouldn't want to overwrite Direct X 10 I'm thinking. After I hit OK to continue installing, the rest of the install goes uneventfully. So, now I'm launching the client from my desktop shortcut and I start another long process of patching up. By the way, that patch program is kind of screwy. I've been reading some other people's complaints on here about how sometimes it'll download and apply a patch, then instead of looking to see if you're now up to the latest revision, it'll just stop and say you may not have the most recent client, but you can attempt to play anyway. For me, anyway, it left the "OK" greyed out when it would do this, so my only option was to "Cancel" out. Then, I'd go back and launch again, and the patching would resume with the next revision download. I finish patching and I'm pretty excited to see how the new computer handles things. But now it says, This application has failed to start because d3dx9_30.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. Fantastic. So, what's the deal? I know there's plenty of people playing UO on Vista without problems. Can someone running Vista 64-bit please confirm that KR runs properly? How do I get it to load with Direct X 10 (of course d3dx9_30.dll is missing -- my OS doesn't use dx9!). Thanks for the help.
