FAQ:

Problem: Receiving the message DINPUT.DLL (or some other .dll file) is missing.
Solution: It sounds like you might not have DirectX installed on your system or it may be improperly installed. Unfortunately, this game needs DirectX 5.0 installed to work correctly. You may want to install DirectX from your Beat the House 2 game. The install files for DirectX are located on your Beat the House 2 CD, run the DXSETUP.EXE file located in the DirectX folder.
