Solved Looking for name of file download from Windows

    The subject of this thread reflects the fact that I originally could not remember the name "DirectX Runtime".

    I tried to install and run a new version of Media Player Classic - Home Cinema and it warned me that I needed to download "DirectX Runtime" from the Windows Download Center.

    This has happened to me in the past with another app and I have downloaded a file that appeared to be "DirectX Runtime". But I could never get it to install correctly.

    I previously switched to Windows Media Player. But I really don't like it and I'd like to know if anyone may be able to suggest a reason why I could never seem to get it to install on my PC successfully?

    First Name:
    Once you download the DirectX Run-time I think it creates folder with the actual real installer in the C: drive, go there and run the setup/installation.
