Important notes of DirectX 9.0C

  • This is the ‘redist’ version of DirectX – all files are downloaded in one package (rather than an active download).
  • Instructions: make a system backup or restore point. Double-click on the file once the download has completed. You will be asked where you want to place the extracted files. This is a temporary folder only – you can delete these files once the Direct X 9.0c installation has completed. Now go to that temporary folder. There will be lots of files in there – run DXSETUP.exe and wait for it to complete the installation. Restart you computer if required. Now you can delete the files in the temporary folder. For future use, you can keep the file you downloaded or simply delete it – it doesn’t matter.
  • DirectX is a crucial system component. It cannot be uninstalled without reinstalling your operating system (!) or performing a system restore/system recovery.
  • To determine what version is current installed on your system and other tips about DirectX, see our guide here.
  • This version of DirectX was released November 2007.

If you had an earlier version of DirectX installed on your windows system, DirectX 9.0c will automatically overwrite any earlier versions. But Microsoft recommended Windows Me and Windows XP users turn on a “System Restore” point before installing.

Windows XP: Microsoft Knowledge Base article 310405.

    Finally! I got my answer! I knew I had the right file from microsoft, but I never knew it was merely something like a .zip file. If they had added instructions to tell us to go to the unzipped folder and execute the DX_Setup.exe file, it would have saved lots and lots of headache.
