problem exporting to directX (.x)

I’ve created a character model in blender for a game I’m working with and I’m trying to get my character to work with directX. I’ve tried the .x exporter within blender and when it goes to load it says “failed to load”.

Blender’s exporting seems to work fine with a cube, but not my character model. Anybody have any pointers as to how I could possibly fix this problem?
