Undo EVERYTHING you have done so far by deleting your Wine directory at 

Now, go to the Applications Database and look for your program.  Follow 
the how-to to run it from there.

Why?  Because there is NO need to download and install the entire 
directx-9c process.  Yes, you MAY need individual D3D9 dll files, but 
not the entire package.

Also, when asking for assistance "My blah-blah-blah" program, like you 
REALLY need to hide it.  Give us more information:

I am running Linux Distribution (insert distribution name here)  version 
(version name and/or number here).

I am trying to get a Windows program (insert name here) and I am running 
into problem (insert problem description here).  If the program 
terminates into the "A Serious Problem has occurred" dialog please run 
the program from the terminal as described in our FAQ 
(http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#run_from_terminal and #get_log).

If the log file is long (more than one screen in length) please post it 
to a site like pastebin.com and post the URL instead of the log file.  
Yes, we will go out and look at it and make suggestions on how to fix 
the more common errors.  You may be asked to create a bug report or 
update and existing bug report.  This is to help you let the developers 
know that the problem exists (we don't have the time to test every 
Windows program that exists) and to let the developers know which 
programs are affected by which bug.
