    What version of Windows do you have?

    For XP:
    To check if the Cryptographic service is enabled go to Start -> Run -> type SERVICES.MSC and press ENTER. In the list double click on Cryptographic Service and make sure the Startup Type is set to Automatic and click on Start if it happens not to be Started. If you get an error message, post it. Then click on OK and close Services.

    You can download the latest Directx 9 redistributable package from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...ab-0983-4c41-9c70-632f6f42c557&DisplayLang=en

    You need to be more specific, we can't see what happened. Was the Cryptographic service already set to Automatic, was it already started? Did you download the Directx version I linked too?

    And yous til haven't told us what version of Windows you have and what Service Pack is installed? Please go to the Control Panel and then to System to see this information.

    And what service pack is installed? SP1, SP2, SP3?

    And was the Cryptographic service Started or Stopped when you checked? Automatic doesn't necessarily mean Started.

    For that matter, what issue were you having that you wanted to reinstall DX? Does it run throught the DirectX diagnostics (DXDIAG)?

    Directx 9.0c is part of Service Pack 1 in Windows XP, so its there if you have Service Pack 1 or higher.

    To find out what service pack you have go to Control Panel and then System. On the General tab it shoudl mention what version of Windows and then right below that the service pack thats installed.

    The latest, the one I posted above. But FYI, you should already have Directx 9.0c installed as its included in SP1.
