    try browsing to
    C:\Users\[your logon]\AppData\Local\Turbine\The Lord of the Rings Online\Launcher
    find reqsoftware.xml and delete the file, lotro will then re-download a new version of the file next time it starts

    if that still fails open reqsoftware.xml in notepad and this section
    Code:
    <File>
       <Description>Microsoft DirectX 9.0 2009.8 Redistributable</Description>
       <FileName>dx9-2009-8-v3.exe</FileName>
       <CommandArgs>/verysilent</CommandArgs>

    and delete the 2<file></file> and all the text between

    the folders are hidden, you need to enable hidden folders.

    see here for instructions which will work for vista\w7
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...show-hide.html

    but its fairly similar under XP

    if you are using XP you need to makesure lotro is installed and run with a logon which has admin level access

    under vista\w7 you may also need to run lotro at least once as administrator to allow some files to install\update

    That worked for me (after spending 1 week downloading all possible directX updates for no result...)

    worked on the first try.

    Deleting reqsoftware.xml solved it for me. I am also using Windows 7.

    I also was experiencing this error on a new Win7 box I was installing on - even after manually downloading and installing the DirectX executable.

    Deleting the .xml file didn't help - it got re-created the same way. But deleting that File section out of the .xml seems to have done the trick.

    Now...if LOTRO would only become natively compatible with Win8. I've managed to make it work, the one time that I tried, by force-feeding the DX to Win8 even though it doesn't want it (and maybe some other shenanigans...don't remember fully).

    I solved the problem by clicking the right button on the game's launcher and then click "Run as administrator".

    Hey, thanks. I forgot to give that a try after my fresh install, and it worked great
