Yes it is good for 64bit.

Click download then click save it will automatically install it.

Delete all the files on desktop from the download.

The installer still doesn't detect DirectX9.0c

Should I install that alone ?

Try these files - Download details: DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010). Extract, then click the exe.

I'm not sure what's going on with that Nov link, as discussed here... DirectX November 2010 update

Also be aware that simply installing a DirectX update does not guarantee success in running games. That's just one aspect of the equation you don't have to worry about you know your DirectX files are up to date.

sygnus21 !! What November link..? The June 2010 is the one that was suggested. Not sure what's going on.

A friend says Windows 7 won't even allow DirectX9.0c alone to get installed, to set XPSP3 compatibility mode on Autorun.exe and/or Setup.exe. I really hope I get this installed. Underground 2 runs like a dream.

The Nov update is problematic, but as you noted, you used the June update so no problem. Now... since the June update is saying your files are up to date.... no updates will occur.

Bottom line.... your DirectX files are up to date.

Please ask your friend to provide proof of this by providing a link where it says that. Microsoft constantly updates ALL DirectX files.

Since your DirectX files are updated I suggest you look somewhere else for your game issue. You should have a look through this guide.... Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

The game installer still claims I don't have 9.0c, I'll see if switching compatibility mode on the install will do.

EDIT: And the screenshot I uploaded is the Web Installer I tried first, that's said to be broken.

I forgot to mention that a lot of older games - Need For Speed - Most Wanted have trouble running on both Vista and Windows 7, especially a 64-bit OS!!!

Sorry but Need For Speed - Most wanted was released in 2005 - Need for Speed: Most Wanted - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not saying it can't be run, but I'm not surprised to see it's having problems. Again, especially on a 64-bit OS.

Sorry

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I've been prompted to install DirectX 9 while installing some games. One of my game Cd's came with DirectX 9 on it, so all I had to do was click yes when prompted and the games installer installed it. Actually I think all it did was update a few files. It didn't break anything as far as I can tell and my newer DirectX 10 games still work. What I do is download the redistributable version of DirectX. Then I extract it to a folder and save that to a USB thumbdrive. In that folder I run the DXSETUP.exe file to install DirectX. I do the same thing for IE, Windows media player, etc. It's just easier and more convenient and a lot quicker to install them from a flash drive than go to windows update.
