Try installing DirectX.

It means that Microsoft, in their great wisdom, left out that file from DX9
on Vista. You just have to install DX9 to put it back.

Thanks very much from me, too. After screwing around with various links from
a Civ IV forum, and downloading various 'fixes', this one finally did it!

thanks a ton!

Yeah, if you never installed a DirectX 9 game, you have to install DirectX.
For some silly reason Vista only ships with DirectX 10, and not DirectX 2,
3, 5, 6, 7, or 9.

Of course Windows XP doesn't come with DirectX either. /shrug.
