    What OS are you running? If it"s xp it should be in Windows\system32 Folder. In 98 it is in Windows\system folder.
    Run a search on your computer for the file , it may be backed up somewhere. If you find it manually put a copy into the system folder , or system32 if you run xp.

    alternately you could try reinstalling Direct x

    The file belongs to DirectX 8. Please check if you have it installed or just install it again. You may also install DirectX 9b which is the latest version.

    Thanks, but I already figured it out last night. Yes, it was DX. . . my previous version was 9.0A and UT2003 must've erased it. I resintalled 9B and it works fine, thanks for the help!
