Default Has anyone successfully installed Directx 9?

I have never been able to successfully install Directx 9. To be clear I have installed Directx using the line command and Wine Tricks. All the correct files including the .dll files are installed into the .wine windows directories. When I try to execute the dxdiag.exe file found in wine -> drive_c -> windows -> system32 nothing happens.

I have tried several tutorials including the one offered by Dedoimedo How to install DirectX in Linux using Wine . Same results, anyway my games seem to run the same with or without Directx but I may need it when I began to play some of the higher end games on steam although these games will most likely be ported specifically for Linux and wont need Directx installed
