Try the M$ Direct X updater (google); it should get your DX up to date. Captainhero June 5, 2009 2:05:34 PM you can also try dxdiag in the run window to get some info on what you are running.. gamerk316 June 5, 2009 4:20:54 PM DXDIAG won't list which DX9 .dll's are installed, and theres a ton of them. The easiest way is to run the updater.
