  1. DirectX Update "PASSWORD"?

    I stupidly gave unsupervised access to a "friend" for an extended time period recently and was eventually presented with a DirectX popup box requesting an administrator account name and password confirmation to begin the DirectX update.

    I have only seen it once, as a test-update I performed using a dxwebsetup.exe seemed to not be hindered by said password.

    I am probably after reassurance and not a possible solution to a problem. But either way is a o k...

  3. DirectX June Update

    Microsoft has released an updated version of DirectX for June, although it isn’t clear whether the update is just for DirectX 9.0c or for DirectX 10 on Vista as well. Regardless of this, it is still recommended that Vista users update their systems because Vista will benefit from any DirectX 9.0c fixes when playing DirectX 9 games. The web installer is only for Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions), whilst the redistributable version will also work with Vista. The download links are listed below:
    • Web installer for Windows 2000, XP and 2003: download [44KB - 41.4MB]
    • Redistributable installer for Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista: download [53.6MB]
