d3dx9_34.dll missing , not found (solution)

I brought Crysis game today, after installed i hit the following error

“This application has failed to start because d3dx9_34.dll could not be found!”

D3dx9_34.dll errors typically appear when a software program, usually a game, is started. The d3dx9_34.dll file is a library file contained in the Microsoft DirectX 9 software package. Cause of this error usually is because Microsoft direct X is out of date.

Solution
Please visit Micsosoft website to download latest Direct X package
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/results.aspx?pocId=&freetext=directx%209&DisplayLang=en

P.S please do not download any d3dx9_34.dll file from any website, this is very dangerous! go Microsoft download it, it’s free.
