DirectX instalation

Specs: Windows XP
My computer is Dell Optiplex GX260 running with windows XP Pro SP3 and Directx 9.0c (version 4.09.00..) installed. Recently i installed Corale digital studio, and when i run it, it says Directx 7 or higher is needed to run it. I checked in 'dxdiag' and it shows as directx installed, and DX setup parameters: not found. I tried to install the latest directx 9.0c (ver 8.0.7600..) The computer says is installed and ready to use. and when i check in 'dxdiag' it shows old version and Coral digital studio says the same, directx 7 or higher is needed.......... Please help

Sounds like your directx may be corrupted. Best to repost in the XP forum and see if anyone there knows of a directx uninstaller that works for XP. (Or they may have other suggestions there.) If you get it successfully uninstalled then try to reinstall.

As far as I know MS doesn't have an uninstaller for directx so you need a third party method.

You're not really green until you're soylent green.

Here's one dirextx 9 uninstaller. I haven't tried it so use it at your own risk. I imagine a google search for directx 9 uninstallers will turn up more ways.

For future reference, there are many different forums here. You posted your problem in the wrong forum. Not to nitpick but it helps to keep things more orderly if posts are where they should be. Also, the problem is more likely to be addressed by knowledgeable help if it is posted correctly.
