DirectX9 games should work on Win7 w/o installing DX9 updates from Microsoft. However, I have solved DX9 problems on Win7 by installing the DX9 updates. This is the update that you need. Run that as an administrator. It may say that it failed to install properly, but it has worked for me even with those error messages. Hope this fixes your problem.

Direct X setup has determined that a newer or equivalent version of direct X has been installed already, No instalation is necessary

1) Just want to make sure you ran the DX9 setup as an administrator.
2) Try running the game in XP compatibility mode. (Go to the primary game executable, right-click>Properties>Compatibility tab.)
3) Do you have the latest drivers for your video card?
4) What game is failing? And is it failing when you try to install the game, or run it?

Sorry, nope. But really, I need to know what game it is. That way, I can direct you to the right folder.

Ok, so open up Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Program Files if you're on a 32-bit system or C:\Program Files (x86) if you're on a 64-bit system. The installation folder of the game should be there. In that folder (the game's installation folder, that is) should be the game's executable to which you can apply the compatibility settings.

It shouldn't say that! There's nothing to extract for the download I pointed you to; it's just a program that you run. What are you trying to extract?
EDIT: I'm going to be busy for a while. Maybe someone else could help you in the meantime...
