I am new to these boards, but I know the issue you're encountering. My directx9.0c would not install and i couldn't play.

I ran a quick windows update and discovered there is a security update for 9.0b

Installing this update through windows update then allowed for 9.0c (what comes with the game) to install cleanly and you'll be able to play.
