Photoshop CC fix D3DCompiler_47.dll is missing from your computer… [SOLVED]

A question from reader Henry:

Hi. Today I did a fresh install of windows 7 pro on my lenovo thinkpad.

Then I try to install adobe photoshop cc but I got an error when running the application:

“D3DCompiler_47.dll is missing from your computer….”

I reinstalled everything but that did not help.

Can you help me with this dll problem? Thanks,
