You could create a DirectX Update folder in Program Files and extract the files to there.

You'll see DXSetup - just duble click on it to start the installation.

The last update was in August apart from the one I've mentioned.

All are still labelled DirectX 9c but this is listed as V4.09.0000.0904.

If your version works OK then there's probably no real need to change (I'm musing as to whether such recent updates are in any way related to Vista development).
