    After reaedind desacrated hero's post I checked my own directx diagnostics and it is showing a file I can not locate thru run or file search.It is showing a yellow exclamation and the notes say the file is a beta version whic is unsupported and may cause problems.
    The next note says i should reinstall directx and get the latest version.
    I am running directx 8.1(latest version).I tried to reinstall and the file and message remain.
    Is this anything I should be concerned about or any hints???
    I am running:
    win98se
    celeron 500mhz
    128mb ram

    What's the file name in question, probably don't need to worry if everything is working properly

    This is pasted from DirectX diagnostic page-
    iac25_32.ax: 2.00.05.0051 English Beta Retail 2/13/1998 14:31:00 199680 bytes

    DirectX Files Tab: The file iac25_32.ax is a beta version, which is unsupported and could cause problems.
    You should reinstall DirectX to get the latest version.
