DirectX update

  guesswho2 21:26 05 Nov 2007

While scanning through the forum just now I've just seen the note about updating DirectX 9.0 c.
Would someone advise how important this is for normal gentle internet browsing ie this old guy does not play games on the computer!
Also, is it a dodgy business getting this update installed?

It isn't essential but at the same time it is not difficult to do and should not cause any problems.

Thanks VoG. Would you care to give me a clue as to what it does. Are all graphics controlled by DirectX?

directx is mainly for 3d rendering the update is probably of more interest to gamers than yourself but installing the update will not cause your machine any harm

OK, thanks for that Devil Fish.
