You need to install PunkBuster, this is not a DirectX problem.

Goto: http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

and download: http://websec.evenbalance.com/downloads/windows/pbsetup.exe

Run pbsetup.exe on your computer, it should find CoD4 and update the
punkbuster files, then try running the game.

If you get the same error try downloading DirectX from
http://www.microsoft.com/Directx

That should fix it.

I had this error with Rainbow Six Las Vegas 2. I installed the latest DirectX 9 (I run Vista 64bit) after a quick search of the net for a solution and it fixed it. I didn't update punkbuster.

I did a search for mss32.dll is not a 64-bit application and COD4, and it
spit out punkbuster as a possible problem.

mss32.dll is a Microsoft Sound System driver I believe. Most DirectX
related issues are dx*.dll type files, but you are more than likely
correct. I guess older applications check for DirectX 9, they see 10 and
think they don't have to do anything.

As I recall, "Best-Practices" for DirectX is to call dxsetup at EVERY game
installation, dxsetup knows how to correctly verify that all DirectX files
are in place for that game. Just another oversight by PC game devs wanting
to do things their own way.

the file iw3sp in the crack folder is the modified exe copy that to the directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare" and run that´s it

The mss32.dll is in this directory
