DirectX End-User Runtimes (Aug 2007)

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q2FybG9z?=, Jul 28, 2007.

  1. Microsoft officially released an update to its DirectX runtimes
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...f3-0949-487b-9247-8fee451bf952&DisplayLang=en
    This download, and installation, should usually not be necessary.
    Manufacturers of games should include these updates bundled in their games
    in order to make them functional.
    The truth is that they don't do that and I have found a couple of instances
    when installing this MS update solved the absence of some DX dlls.
    Vista and XP x64 compatible.

    Don't worry about. The setup program will put the files in the right
    place no matter what version of Windows that you are using. As Carlos
    said, these minor DirectX updates are rarely needed.

  4. Kue2:
    The path asked by the installer is just for extraction.
    It does not ask for the installation path.
    It will take care by itself later on with no "human" intervention.
    I can't recall which games were packed without the necessary dll's, but
    there were definitely two of them that would not run.
    Installing this pack solved it.
    The good thing about this distribution is that it requieres no reboot.
    Just launch it, keep doing your tasks, and wait for it to finish.
