For those who are interested: i am on the way to migrate from i686 to
x86_64. 'inch by inch, step by step, mile by mile' (borrowed from
cabaret). Not arrived yet and there are some differences to consider.

Regarding wine, there are now additional directories 'Program Files
(x86)' and 'windows/syswow64'. I had put d3dx9_36.dll into
windows/system32 and wintetricks has decided to use 'windows/syswow64'

I am a little bit curious what would have happened if i replaced the
.dll in syswow64 instead of system32.

Overriding was not necessary in the past. Copying DLLs just worked. If
necessary in this case, hm.

That's surely the way to go for me in the future. :)
