Windows 7: DirerctX won't install - Internal Error

DirerctX won't install - Internal Error

Hello everyone,

After hours spent reading topics on the subject, I come to you with my problem.

I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 on my laptop and since then I can't get DirectX to install. I downloaded the most recent end-user redistributable I could find (June 2010 from Microsoft Download center) but to no avail. The installation fails after some time due to an "internal error" and I should check the DirectX and DXError logs. I have attached these two files.

Dxdiag says DirectX Version : DirectX 11
I checked the registry keys with regedit and they seem fine.
I tried sfc /scannow, came up with no errors.
I did a clean-boot, didn't change a thing.

So basically I'm all out of ideas. I'd rather like to avoid having to reinstall windows again especially as it's brand new and I don't understand what I did wrong. Thanks for your help !

Best regards

i would try the simple thing of re downloading direct x and then try installing it again. Sometimes something will corrupt the downloaded files and therefore they wont install correctly. Give that a shot and see what happens.
