Hello to everyone facing this problem! I too faced it!

FIRST: do not under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES download the dll directly from a non-official source. This includes places like dllfiles.com -- dlls are pieces of executable code that can do low level system actions. You have no idea if those files have been changed, if they contain viruses, or if they will generally cause problems.

So what can you do?

For the long version, the solution is here: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findby..._39dll-dll.htm

Here's a quick summary. Do these steps in order:

1) Make sure Windows is fully updated. Every time you restart you have to manually "check for updates" to make sure there aren't any missing.
2) Make sure your graphics card drivers are fully updated. Google is your friend here.
3) Make sure your directx is fully updated. Follow the links from the article above to do this. They point you directly to Microsoft. Be very careful not to just download random files from the internet
4) Reinstall League of Legends.

After each of those steps you need to restart your computer and try launching again. Any of them COULD solve your problem, but if you are like me, none of those steps will work.

5) Restore the specific dll directly from the DirectX Package and then restart -- instructions: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixthe...toredx9dll.htm

#5 is what solved the problem for me. For whatever reason, even though I had used that exact same package to update DirectX, I had to replace the file in C:\Windows\System32 directly.

I hope this helps another summoner get in the game!

Try that and doesn't matter if you already have newest directx, this file worked for two of my computers, so should work for most of us. Good Luck.

Worked like a charm

If the url changes in future, you want to download the "DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer" from microsoft.

Click the "download zip file" link and place the file in your Windows folder.

Incase you don't know where the windows folder is, Click Start>Computer>Local Disk>Windows

EDIT: Let me know if this works.
Worked for me, although i got the error because i copied all the lol files to my external hard drive, reformatted my laptop and tried to play it off the external, this little file is all i needed
Thank you so much bro...
