Tie Fighter and the DirectX dillema

I have the X-Wing Collector Series and I can run both X-wing and XVST, however each time I start Tie-Fighter it indicates me I need to install DirectX and it's stuck there. I never ran the game. Eventually trying to run it using the Tie95.exe in the directory makes a win xp error.

My specs:

WinXP SP 2 with Direct X 9

when i run the "Analyse your Computer" thingy it's all "PASSED".
Why can't I run the game?

The only thing that I could find that may possibly help you is compatibility mode. Lucasarts tells you how to do it here.

Good luck.

Actually, the same 3D compatibility fix on LucasFiles that allows the XW95 and TIE95 to run w/ hardware 3D acceleration in WinXP also fixes the DirectX version problem in TIE95 (what MandoBlood is describing is TIE95 looking for DirectX 5 even w/ later versions already installed).

Speaking of the 3D comp patch, when I try and use it, it crashes with an error, followed by a "X has generated errors and will be closed by windows" error. Any ideas?
