i have installed the latest direct x9 and a dx diagnostic check acknowledges that it is installed, that it is the latest version, and there are no problems with it.
despite this i am unable to install games, i have tried 2 different games and have encountered the same problem both times. the games are TW07 and NFSC.
i only get as far as entering the serial code, when i hit enter, i get a message saying that the game can not be installed because the latest version of direct x is not installed, and tells me to go to microsoft page to download latest version.
anyone got any idea what may be wrong?
could there be a compatibility issue with any installed components?
