    What problems in downloading/setting up DirectX8.1A should I be aware of? And will Windows, & non-Microsoft programs on my comp. now still continue to run as they should.
    Has this version got rid of some of the problems which 8.0 seemed to be filled with judging from what I've read around the web?
    Don't remember what the program is to look at what DirectX is in this comp., but was told that version of Windows in mine came with Version 6. something.
    VBrun files ... Do those have to be updated before DirectX8.1A is downloaded/setup?

    I don't see any reason you should have any trouble with dx8.1

    Your video card certainly has the appropriate drivers available.

    You may want to check for updated drivers for your audio but they will probably work just fine the way it is.

    yes directx 8.1 has most of the bugs of 8 removed or fixed
    just download and install if your drivers are not signed by microsoft directx will tell you so but no action is taken
