  1. Well.. It wasn't working. So I decided to reinstall it, I uninstalled it by deleting the registry folder. Just like it said in one site. Than I tried to reinstall it.. But it gave me this error log:

    Get your XP disk handy and enter these commands 1 at a time in the command line (start, run, cmd /k);

    SFC /Purgecache

    SFC /Scannow

    If I updated to Directx 9.0L < Directx 10.0 for XP > Will Directx9.0C + games work?
