    Hello all,

    I recently purchased the Sims 2 and tried to install it. Then the message came up about DirectX. I currently have DirectX 9.0b, I needed DirectX 9.0c. No problem, checked liscense agreement, agreed, next button, next button, then the load screen, and before anything loads, I get the following:
    _________________________________________________________________

    DirectX Setup

    A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted.

    OK
    _________________________________________________________________

    I don't understand. I trust it. It came from the CD I just spent $50 on. I decided to see what Microsoft had to say. Nothing. Of course they think everything is wonderful and cheery with their software. I downloaded THEIR DirectX 9.0c and the same message appeared. Please help.

    (I have Windows XP.)
    Thanks

    Some things to try:

    Start -> Run and Type "gpedit.msc" ENTER
    Click + by Computer Configuration
    Click + by Windows Settings
    Click + by Security Settings
    Click + by Software Restriction Policies
    Click + by Trusted Publishers
    For "Allow the following users to select trusted
    publishers," the default is "End users."
    If you do not have this at all, this does not apply.
    This is typically the activeX error or the 0x800b0004

    The log file contains "Error 0x80092026: The cryptographic operation failed due to a local security option setting.", error. This occurs due to local security setting, to resolve the issue check for "safer" key in registry and delete it.

    Locate the following key
    Start/Run
    Type "regedit" ENTER
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mic rosoft\
    SystemCertificates\TrustedPublisher
    Under "TrustedPublisher" look for "Safer" key.
    Delete the "Safer" key if it is there.

    OR

    Try and registry the following dll's and then check to see if you have resolved the error.

    The problem may occur if the softpub.dll file is missing or not registered properly.
    Register Softpub.dll
    1. Click Start.
    2. Choose Run.
    3. In the Run box, type regsvr32 SOFTPUB.dll.
    4. Click OK.
    The problem may occur if the Mssip32.dll file is missing or not registered properly.
    Register Mssip32.dll
    1. Click Start.
    2. Choose Run.
    3. In the Run box, type regsvr32 Mssip32.dll
    4. Click OK.
    The problem may occur if the Initpki.dll file is missing or not
    registered properly
    Register Initpki.dll
    1. Click Start.
    2. Choose Run.
    3. In the Run box, type regsvr32 Initpki.dll.
    4. Click OK.

    Thanks Triple6,
    I tried the first thing but that didn't work. Then I registered the .dll files, and presto!, it setup like a charm, I would've responded earlier, but I was away from my computer most of today.

    Thanks a bunch!
