35545844 is DXT5, aka. the dreaded patented S3TC texture compression.
The D3D guys will be able to tell you whether there's any hope that
D3DXCreateTextureFromFileInMemoryEx supports that.

Many apps appear to use d3dx_36.dll when in fact they do not, because Wine
redirects everything to _36, the others are stubs.
Use WINEDEBUG=+loaddll to see which .dll is looked for initially. Then use only
this one natively (presumably _26 here), not the _36 fallback. Then +loaddll
will change and show that once native _26 is found and loaded, _36 is not
sought anymore.
Sometimes it's a little less obvious when the app is split across 2 .exe files,
each of which linked against another d3dx_XY.dll SDK.
