When I start up ST starfleet command III it goes through the cinamatic scenes then when it gets to the part where the menu is supposed to load it errors out saying "DirectX 8.1 is not installed" this is not true I have DirectX 9.0 so I isntalled the older 8.1 which came with the game and I dont think that worked. Well I cant fix this problem can anyone help please??:confused:

Hi all, I tried that fix for my game yet although it got rid of the Direct X 8.1 error, it now comes with an additional error in its replacement, the attachment shows the error

if anyone has a solution to the problem please help! :)

I got it sorted, a rogue driver file installed by my ISP's softwarecaused the problem, of course it took an entire fresh install before i realised, so thats annoying, of course, now my system is totally sfc3, nothing else installed, havent had time sincei got it working :D :P
