Hey Everybody, How's ya?

Lookin' for the geeks forum, because I sure haven't figured this part out.
So here's the situation:

I tried to install DirectX 9.0c two times from two separate download locations and files. Both installations failed with the error message of,
"The software you are installing has not passed windows logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP. This sofware will not be installed. Contact your system Administrator."
Just because, I installed it three more times. But with the same disappointing results.

What is a system administrator, and how do I contact them? What do they do? And will this help to solve the problem?

Setup:
"An internal system error occurred. Please refer to DXError.log and DirectX.log in your windows folder to determine problem."

I looked at the log files and I don't see how this can help me. It doesn't tell me anything that I already don't know!!!
Installation end.
Installation failed.

I Need the DirectX 9.0c Digital Signature from the "Designed for Microsoft Windows" logo, which seems to be a device driver I guess.

The administrator (privileges) is assigned to one or more of the user logons. Look for users in control panel - Users have administrative, limited, or guest accounts. Your logon should be administrator, if you are the owner.

Thanks for the reply ksiemb :bounce: 

If I am already using the computer with the administrator privleges (the Administrator), and not as a guest or another logon account, then why would the computer tell me to consult the "system administrator"? Because I am the system administrator!!!!!! So how does this help me to consult myself :o

A person must ask the question of why Microsoft Direct-X won't install, if it is genuine.

You say it fails MS Logo testing. I question that. The real Direct-X is from MS and it is not subject to logo testing.

If you did not get it from MS, then you have an adulterated copy and it should be discarded.

The two different locations you downloaded it from... they weren't from MS now were they??

Thanks for your reply,

Nhasian, I am the only person that uses the computer, so it automatically boots up and doesn't go to the "logon screen" in the beginning. But if I am the main user, then I should have administrator rights, right?


Wow, Tigsounds, what an excellent response! I didn't even think about that -- but it makes sense. I didn't even consider that that could be an issue!! No, both of the programs weren't from the microsoft site. But one of them was. But when I went to the microsoft site to get the program, it didn't look like the screen that another person gave me a link to... Strange huh? Although I have heard of sites that sound or are spelled almost the same as the site you are trying to find, with only one letter off or so, and it is a completely different site... Other than this, I can't figure out what happened, except that I don't know how to navigate through the microsoft site!

Captain's Log, Stardate 3121

All systems are up and running. The terminal is back online. We have been stranded for days on this distant world. The aliens here seem to be friendly. The aliens helped us to repair our ship.

Prepare to engage the hyperdrive engines. Bring us to warp speed. We can now return to the Gamma Quadrant, in Starsystem 4, on Starbase 213. Beam me up Scotty.


Problem Solved:
Went directly to the manufacture's site and got a fresh copy directly from the source.
