Hi there,

New player here.  I upgraded from Windows 7 Home to Windows 8 Pro.  Then heard about
World of Tanks, so I gave it a try.  

I downloaded the installer, installed it.  Ran the application.  It did its updating thing.
I logged in, and I for an error saying:

WorldOfTanks.exe - System error

The Program can't start because of d3dx9_43.dll is missing from your computer.  Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.  

I just did that, re-installed and got the same error.
I added a screenshot of the error.

Anyone have any idea for a fix?

Thanks,

- U

I upgraded from Win7 Home Premium to Win 8 PRO. No problems.

Perhaps try modifying the shortcut to select compatibility modes?
