Can you check the size of the file as reported by Windows? (Open the file explorer and go to c:\program files\Mixxx, and check what size does the d3dcompiler_47.dll shows).

It should be 3620KB. If it shows 4364KB then somehow it is trying to use a 64bit version, while you said you have a 32bit Windows.

(Additional information for developers.
This file is obtained from Visual Studio. On Mixxx\build\util.py, there's the find_d3dcompiler_dll method that tries to locate the file based on what is accessible from the PATH environment variable. PATH variable is initialized by the scripts Visual Studio 14\VC\bin\vcvars32.bat or Visual Studio 14\VC\bin\amd64\vcvars64.bat depending on the bitness selected .
I haven't checked the contents of the 32bit Mixxx installer to check if it is correct or not, I usually use the 64bit one)
