Assuming you mean D3dx9_41.dll, it's part of Microsoft's DirectX library so you'd do better to reinstall or update DirectX rather than just a copy of the DLL.

You can find some instructions and advice here:

Usually when a game which needs a specific DirectX version, it installs that version during the game installation. You say you downloaded these two games to your desktop - but have you actually installed them to your computer?

If you have actually installed the games, then try Phlebas' link.

Some people have reported that they had to disable their antivirus before re-installing DirectX in order for the dll to be installed properly.
