Just Reinstalled XP Pro

Recommended Posts

...had an issue. PC would not boot outside of Safe Mode. So I had to back up the important stuff and do a fresh install of XP Pro.


Now - I am confused by which EXACT DirectX install I should go w/ here. My understanding is that XP uses 9C and Vista uses 10.


- Is that in fact correct?

- And, if so, where is the correct link for 9C?


Is this it:




I really need to know before I install as I don't want to screw stuff up.


System specs:

You don't really have to worry. MS Update will grab the latest version of DX. Or you can go to www.microsoft.com/directx and get it from there.


Anyway, you can't get DX10 for XP, it doesn't exist, so there's no danger of getting the wrong one. Vista uses DX9L I think, but you don't have it so no worries. :grin:
