Windows 7: Gaming problems because of this error

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)
Gaming problems because of this error


I have games on Steam that wants to install DirectX over and over again. I think it fails to install it.
You see, when I update it manually (the full package), it comes with this error:

DirectX setup has determined that a newer or equivalent version of DirectX has been installed already. No installation is necessary.
I don't know if I should install the components one by one? (June, August etc.)

Doesn't make much sense to me, it should allow me to update the files anyway.
