Some games need DirectX of an earlier version. Since DirectX 11 is the newest, and not all video cards can even run it, there may be a problem. I think you can download DirectX 9.0c which might be what you need. Many games will install their version of DirectX, if they are allowed.

Try running the dxdiag.exe program, and make note there is an option to run the x64 version on the page.
