    This is a known issue when u try upgrading from 9.0b to 9.0c. Get a DirectX unistaller (like DirectX Eradicator, DirectX Happy Uninstall, ...) uninstall 9.0b and then try reinstalling DirectX9.0c. It worked out for me :)

    Yes, as said above, this is a known issue and some members had this problem too.

    Just uninstall DirectX & then reinstall the 9.0c version.

    To uninstall DirectX safely, use this reliable tool:
    DirectX happy uninstall

    Here was a similar problem which was easily solved by this tool:
    Direct X Problem

    check out ur video and sound drivers.
    check whether u can execute dxdiag.exe form "startmenu->run"
    if u can't ,then update drivers accordingly.
