You have XP so you already have DX9.0 installed. Are you trying to upgrade to DX9.0c? Where are you trying to download it from? You *should* be getting it from Microsoft.

Did you try downloading the file I linked to? It's the complete DX9.0c package which you can save for reuse. I suspect you're running the web installer rather than downloading the actual file. Is this the one you tried installing?
