i am trying to install DirectX 9.0c for a new game, i have 9.0b.
i downloaded the installer for 9.0c from microsofts website and it installs to then end and then says "A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted." and then installation failed.
anyone know whats happening? thanks
what verson of windows do you have?
i have XP home. i think i read somewhere that i need service pack 2? ive been told to try and stick with SP 1, is this true? should i risk getting SP2?
The file qasf.dll is an old version, which could cause problems. You should reinstall DirectX to get the latest version.
is also what i find in start>run>dxdiag

I've been running XP w/ SP2 ever since SP2 came out and have never had a single problem that was caused by SP2.
And i'm not positive, but i think Direct X 9.0c is included in SP2.
It is, but you can run 9c in SP1. It's been out far longer than SP2.
schecter, if you've been using the web install that is like a small download and then the installer downloads the rest, it may be a problem with that. Try this one, it's a single download that contains everything. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9226A611-62FE-4F61-ABA1-914185249413&displaylang=en

Oh ok, i wasn't sure if you could run 9.0c in SP1 or not and didn't feel like looking it up at the time.
So nevermind to what i said then.
