How do I resolve a 126 error?
This error can appear while installing or starting a game that requires the latest version of Microsoft DirectX, which is required to display the game's graphics.
Make sure the game installs its version of DirectX
Some games will prompt you to install a version of DirectX that is included with the game. If you're receving an error 126, please uninstall and reinstall the game, making sure to accept the DirectX installation request that is part of the game's installation process. This may be easy to miss, so please make sure that you carefully review every request that the game prompts during installation.
Even if you are certain you already have the latest version of DirectX, select Yes to download the update that the game requests. You will then be notified if you already have the latest version and the game installation will continue as normal. If you are prompted to restart your computer at the end of the installation, please do so.
