Direct X 9.0c

  Rhuddlan 19:04 27 Oct 2005

My friend's brother has a computer that he only plays games on and doesn't require an internet connection, but his games need Direct X 9.0c in order for him to play them, when inserting a cd/rw disc with Direct X 9.0c on that I downloaded off the net, a mesage appears saying something like cannot continue with installation due to network connection, like I said he doesn't want or need the net, so is there a way I can install Direct X 9.0c onto his comp without an internet connection? Thanks in advance.

How big is the file you downloaded?

If it's only a few hundred Kb then it's a file designed to download the files needed during installation.

Try downloading click here - it's 34 Mb

According to Microsoft:

"The DirectX 9.0c Redist is recommended for those users that do not have internet connection during installation".
