Troubleshoot A Directx 9 0 C Installation Problem

Released in 2004, Microsoft DirectX 9.0c is an application that allows an operating system to efficiently work with hardware components such as the video card and the sound card. DirectX 9.0c must be installed when running video games using the pixel shader 1.1 technology. If you cannot install DirectX 9.0c properly, the problem most probably lies with the DirectX installer you are using.


1. Check whether the operating system supports DirectX 9.0c. Windows operating systems that support DirectX 9.0c include Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. You cannot install DirectX 9.0c if you are using Windows 95 or Windows NT.

2. Download a new DirectX redistributable package from the Microsoft website (see Resources). After downloading, attempt to install DirectX 9.0c by double-clicking the downloaded file. The DirectX installer that you were previously using might be corrupted. Using a new DirectX installer will resolve the problem.

3. Restart the computer and then attempt to install DirectX 9.0c. The DirectX installer might be in a locked state. Restarting the computer will resolve the issue.
