Hi

You cant use the much newer directx 11, and net framework 3.5? If not it is going to be really difficult if not impossible.

What are you talking about with, "Where is the support??"

I answered you with an excellent post and I'm answering you now with another excellent one.

Open an elevated command prompt. Copy and paste the following command, then hit enter. It will repair or replace any damaged or missing files, .net framwork included.

sfc /scannow


Check on those apps you're trying to run. Maybe they are not compatible with 7 like other similar apps. Maybe they are.

Also do a Windows Update.

You'd probably do better trying to check Win7 compatibility for the software you're trying to run. Or, you could be more forthcoming about what it is. Your problem may not have much to do with your DitrectX installation.

For example: Acid Pro 6 was released in 2006. Windows Vista became available at retail in January of 2007. I don't know whether Acid Pro 6 will run on any Microsoft OS newer than XP. (There was a major change involving DirectSound between XP and Vista. 7 is essentially the same as Vista.)

Acid Pro 7 is supposed to be Win7 compatible.

If you skipped Vista, you may find that some of your software isn't compatible. If that's the case, you'll have to decide whether to update the software, or revert to XP.

"wheres the support" comment.. not directed at here or you.. sorry

i mean.. on all the microsoft official sites there is no mention of this.

.................................................................................................... ..............

ive installed...

directx_mar2009_redist

and

directx_aug2009_redist

but this doesnt seem to do the trick..

installing direct x 9... it just says i have the equivelent or higher installed..


and the net framework 1.1 it says there are incompatability issues..

ive installed the net frame 4 beta... but this hasnt worked for 1.1

and the directx end user one installs... but acid pro still says you need directx 9... and net 1.1

the scannow came up with no "integrity violations"
