Ok heres my situation... I started the DirectX 8.1 SDK install in the morning before I left for work. Came home at lunch and there was a dialog box saying there was an install error. However it had the standard installation complete window that asks you to reboot. So I reboot. Then when the progress bar is halfway up in the Windows startup screen it seems to hang. I''m running Win2k With Service Pack 3. I tried starting up in safemode which worked... however when I tried to uninstall the SDK it tells me I can''t access the windows installer becuase I am in safe mode....Argh isn''t that what safe mode is for to fix problems like this? grrr I just reinstalled this entire system a few weeks ago and I would like to avoid having to do it again. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance.
