Been trying to play the game at the library, since my home comp is unavailable. Looked around on the forums and saw that people managed to get the game to play from a usb, so I went and grabbed a USB 3.0 and downloaded the game onto it. Tried to load the game up and it said that "d3dx9_43.dll is missing". Tried to copy my direct X files over from my old comp onto the USB, still getting the same error. I can't download from the library computer, so everything I need to play the game needs to be contained within the USB.

Direct x has to be installed in the computer. The operating system uses it.

I had the issue when I first installed it on my new(er) PC, installing direct X didn't work, I needed to install the SDK.

​Wargaming.net Customer Service Center has an article titled: What do I do when I get a DirectX error? that you might want to review.

As others have said you need to have direct X installed on the computer.  However it is highly likely that you wont be able to install programs on the library computer, so tough luck..........

To install DirectX you'd need access to the Windows folders... You can access them on library computers, but not edit them (read-only). IIRC you can right click an icon on the desktop and click 'Show file location' which will open up the file location of the program (likely C: → Program File → Program from desktop) in the Windows file explorer. From there you can click your way into the C: directory and look around there to see if it's installed or not on other systems.

 

There's likely a way to do it by booting into some other "OS" at a startup (via boot menu) that allows editing of folders, where you can place the DirectX DLLs off of a flash drive and said Windows folders. 

Should be possible from a Linux (likely Ubuntu) live CD/USB of sorts. Might be helpful.
