Windows 7: Failed DirectX Install, cannot reinstall

24 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 x32
Failed DirectX Install, cannot reinstall

After a failed DirectX End User Runtime installation, I cannot reinstall due to the installer kindly informing me my copy is up to date. Charming, I know, but if I try and launch a game it will also kindly inform me that d3dx9_##.dll is missing. So, considering there's no uninstall option, what are my options?
