Ah, then your issue has nothing to do with Vista. The reason D3DX9_32.dll is not found is because you have D3DX9_64.dll.

Try reinstalling DirectX here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=B406CF67-D926-463B-99E8-27199D6626B5&displaylang=en

If that doesn't work, try downloading this and putting it in your civ4 folder: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?d3dx9_32
