Windows error: DirectX 7 or greater cannot be found

**Affected Game Title(s):** Strategic Command 1 - European Theater running a DirectX video card This error pops up when DirectX 7 support (which is what SCET is using) does not properly initialize under Vista. The error is a little misleading in saying "or greater" because it's irrelevant if you have any later version of DirectX (which you most likely do) or not. **The solution:** - make sure that you have the file "dx7vb.dll" in the root directory if your game installation You can download the file here: Command - European Theater **(Vista Users)** Make sure that you launch the game for the first time with the option "Run as administrator" if you have UAC (User Access Control) enabled.
