How to fix D3DX9_43.DLL missing error in Windows 10

In Windows 10, Microsoft upgraded their Direct X version to DirectX 12.

Even you have the latest version of Direct X, some games or other applications might come up with this error when you run them.

If you encountered this error message after installing your program…

Let’s get started and fix it!

1.) Download this “DirectX End-User Runtime (EULA)" from Microsoft website.

2.) Run the installer. Make sure you are connected to the Internet.

3.) After the installation, VOILA! try to Run your games or programs that you have installed and it should all work now without errors.

Additional Notes: 

  • If it still doesn’t work, try to restart your computer after DirectX installation.
  • It also works in Windows 7 or 8

USB fix for lost files and hidden folders

Your files are gone?

No files are visible in your USB flash drive but still there is used space?

Lots of unknown shortcut icons?

Your anti virus can’t do a thing?

Dont format it yet!

This is how we’re going to fix it in 3 EASY STEPS!

1.) Press Windows Key + X

  • then choose Command Prompt (Admin)
2.) in Command Prompt (Admin) type 
NOTE: (be careful with space and / and \)
  • attrib -h -r -s /s /d [usb drive letter]:\*.* then press enter
given that g: is your USB drive letter type:
  • attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* then press Enter
3.) VOILA! your files are back and safe again.

 

Additional Tips:

  • You can scan your USB flash drives again with your preferred Anti Virus after doing this to remove other common problems.
