is there something wrong here???

You'd probably do better trying to check Windows 7 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 Windows 7 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.
