DirectX issue - setup has detected that one or more directx component

I'm having an issue where i can't reinstall directx from the latest redist on Windows 7 Pro x64.

When i goto run the setup i just get 'setup has detected that one or more directx component files in-use by an application' then i'm forced to exit the installer.

Can anyone help to resolve this?? Afraid i'm not very good with Windows 7 diagnostics yet

Have you tried to uninstall it and reinstall it?

Did you try to reboot the machine then try again?

Well i can't actually find out a way to uninstall so if someone can try pointing out how that would be great but yes, i've tried to reinstall, reboot etc. Each time i get the same message when trying to reinstall it.

Back when i last had directx issue, in XP there were tools to completely remove it to start again but can't seem to find any for Windiws 7

I don't think you can actually "uninstall" DirectX from Windows 7. There may be a hack or other nefarious ways but....

However you can do a System Restore to an earlier time before you did the current update, than try doing the update again using these files... DirectX End-User Runtime

Let us know.
