Directx 9.0c and SP2

By taffia77

  1. For some reason, when I install SP2 onto XP, I can't then install Directx 9.0c.
    I know that my hardware is compatible because on a fresh install of XP, without SP2 installed, I installed 9.0c successfully and ran NFS Most Wanted without any glitches.
    However, when I put SP2 onto that install, Directx reverts back to 9.0b and simply will not go back to 9.0c no matter how I try and install it.
    Does anyone have any suggestions please?

    Think I've found the answer to this. It appears that I've got a beta version of SP2 and that installs DX 9.0b.
    When I'm installing 9.0c it checks that SP2 is installed and then doesn't bother installing itself because it thinks 9.0c will already be installed :knock:

    Case of uninstalling SP2 and getting the last version from Microsoft.
