Visit this Microsoft page.

Click on link in "Answer" section.

Or go directly to this Microsoft page. Download and install the "DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer".

That solved my problem a few months back.

This package contains everything you should need and doesn't require an internet connection while installing. You need to download it from your office however.

Namaskar Jasdeep,

Have you tried the dxsetup present in the various game setups you mentioned. It will help most of the times.

Look in your c:\windows\system32 folder and see if it is there.
