    Hi Lost Soul,

    Install <A HREF="http://www.microsoft.com/directx/homeuser/downloads/default.asp">Microsoft DirectX 8.0a</A> , and your file will be restored as well.

    Good luck,

    On that web page, there are versions available for various operating systems, and the only reason for your error would be that you picked the wrong one.

    Here's a direct download link to DirectX for Win98/ME:

    Good luck,
