Shite! I am trying to download DirectX 9.0, and it has the downloading box that comes up, and when it says, "DirectX 9.0 has downloaded successfully!" It doesnt really download. Some of your guys have to know what actions to take. And for those of you who would recommend troubleshooting, this is what I did... 1. Start 2. Run 3. Typed in "dxdiag" 4. Then, went to the "DirectX Files" tab. And in the note box it says "The file d3d9d.dll is a debug version, which will run slower than the retail version." Help anyone?...

If you run dxdiag again the very first page will tell you what version - it's in the main frame at the very bottom. For example, mine says "DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)"

IIRC the main DX installer is web-based - it'll only update/install if you need it. If you clicked on the download and it did nothing, chances are you already have it.

That's not a problem, I'd imagine you'll have a few other notes like that... the suffix 'd' before the extension means it's a debug binary. You should have another file without it - d3d9.dll.

You want those there if you're going to write programs, but any production code won't use them so they don't do any harm [smile]

No, because when I go to put my Music Creator disc in, it says I need to download DirectX and I have gone through this process a number of times. Anything else that would help me out?
