Strange problem with Directx 9.0c installation

  1. Hi guys, first time caller, long time listener :cool:

    I've encountered a very strange problem with my directx9.0c installation. When I try to install it, it sends me directly to the "Installation completed" screen, without having copied any files to my computer.

    This is what dxdiag is looking like:

    OS: Windows XP professional (5.1, Build 2600)
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) Processor, MMX, 3DNow, ~1.0GHz
    Memory: 768 RAM
    DirectX Version: DirectX9.0b (4.09.0000.0903)

    I run a ATI ALL-IN-WONDER 9800 series with the latest CATALYST drivers.

    Any help on my strange problem would be very appreciated.

    Thank you

    The download may be bad...did you try downloading it from another source?

    I've downloaded it from microsoft directly, and 3 other websites, I tried installing it from SWAT4 and from the redistrubutable version found on this site, always the same result.

    I also get this in the notes:

    The file qasf.dll is an old version, which could cause problems.
    You should reinstall DirectX to get the latest version. (lol)

    Does anyone know how I could replace this qasf.dll file?

    I don't know what version it is but you can get that file at:

    Instead of deleting the existing version, rename it, then replace it with the downloaded one. That way you can always go back the original if necessary.

    I tried replacing it, but the file always goes back to the old one :S
