How can I fix a d3dx9_33.dll error message when you install a game?

When I go to play a game that I recently installed, a system error box appears which says: the program cannot start because d3dx9_33.dll is missing on your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

What does that mean?

The error message is a bit misleading. D3dx9_33.dll is not part of the game, it is a part of DirectX 9. To reinstall DirectX 9 should solve the problem.
