DirectX - Have I Got The Latest Version?

  07patty 19:28 18 Feb 2009

Seeing as Burnout Paradise PC keeps crashing with the error message "nv4_disp" [Loads of other people on the EA Forums are having this problem as well] i decided to see if updates are available for absolutely everything.
After upgrading drivers etc. i got to the DirectX.

Now after doing a DXDiag it says my version is:
DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

Yet, when i try and upgrade it to the latest version which is on the a href="click here">Microsoft Website DirectX November /a> and after validating etc, it says i have the latest version?

Is this number: 9.25.1476 : the version of the installer or DirectX?

Thanks for your help.

looks like its the graphics card driver or another nvidia file. probably a patch for the game will fix.

Sorry i forgot to say that i'm using XP (Service Pack 3).

It is definitely a Nvidia file [If you Navigate to "C:\NVIDIA\WinXP\181.22\English"]

Yes, hopefully a patch for the game will fix this. The information on this has been passed to Criterion, and EA Support know about it.
