Windows 7: Problem with Directx when trying to open games..

01 Jul 2009   #11

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

OK, this may or may not be your solution but here it goes...

I am usually weiry when games ask me to install DirectX since I usually keep the latest versions but, I have come to learn that some games don't start or play well when you don't install the directX that comes with the game installation.

So, in short, go ahead and reinstall the game(s) and when and if it asks you to install DX, just say YES... I do not believe it can harm your PC by doing so but it may let you play the game
