I downloaded DX8.1 yesterday and tried to install it. What do I see on the screen - "error in .cab file". Now does that p*** you off or what. Even worse the fact I got the file from www.microsoft.com Any suggestions of a way of correcting this? Indy. PS Don''t fancy another 11 meg download.

Maybe it''s because you''re missing another 114 megs. The SDK size is actually 135 megs in size.

Thats not bad.

I downloaded the whole DirectX 8.0 SDK on my 33.6 modem (all 140mbs of it) and it didn''t work. So instead, I just got my parents (who have a credit card) to order it for me for Christmas.

Do not forget to uninstall your DX8.0 SDK (or any other DX SDK) if you have it currently installed


I managed to install it without uninstalling previous ones.
