    Hi,
    I recenly re-installed WinXp and want to upgrade my DirectX from v8.1 to v9.0c.

    However whenever i run the DirectX 9.0c setup it shows that installation is complete (without copying any files). However dxdiag shows that no change has been made.

    Please help me!
    Is there any way to uninstall DirectX 8.1?

    Thanks!

    You must reinstall Windows XP to solve the problem . I also faced the same problem once . My system had Win Xp SP2 build .... (something like this ) . I formatted my comp and installed Win Xp with SP2 from a diffrent cd .

    I got this wonderful tool some time ago which enables you to uninstall DirectX safely.

    Had a similar problem with my system too.
    Here's the tool:
    DirectX Happy Uninstall

    Its a trial version, but you can use it to some extent. Tell me how it works..

    Savvy!! :!:

    dx9.1 is not released yet, and it is made to enhance geforce fx than any other card....google around...you might not find it...

    if you have friends at microsoft, however, its a different story...
