  1. Hey all, iam new to this website. I cant install directx 9.0c. My directx error is "directx failed to copy a required file". But i think its because my video card wont support it. How can I check to see if my card can support direct x 9.0c? Is it the ddi version, cause if it is i have version 7. It is supposed to be 9? I tryed installing the new driver from nvidia but i still get version 7 ddi. Does this mean i have to buy a new video card? Sorry i have so many questions but i am also new to computers and stuff. Well here are my specs:

    I know what you are going to say. You are going to tell me that directx 9.0c is already installed cause it says it. But its not. That is another thing i dont get. I cant install directx 9.0c fully, but it says i have it installed. I cant play any recent video games becuase of this problem. Please help me.Thanks in advance.
