I have a headset with a mic that I'm trying to use, and I cannot get the computer to test my sound hardware when I go to Voice in the Sounds menu in control panel. It gives me the following report:

An error occured during DirectPlay Voice setup. The error code is 0x80004005

Afterward, it says:

Windows cannot excecute DpvSetup.exe, use Add/Remove Programs control panel to install.

I quite frankly do not know what to do about this. A friend told me that it is an issue with Directx 9.0c that I have installed, and that I should reinstall the previous version, 9.0b. Only problem is, I am unable to do so because when I attempt to run the setup, it says that a newer version is detected on my computer and that an installation is not necessary, then it closes. :confused: Help would be greatly appreciated here, thanks.

I am not intent on using my mic for Doom 3, only for UT 2004. And I am also very bad about backing my computer up lol...I prefer to fix problems and stick with that (I know it may not be completely logical, but it is the way I tend to do it...pardon me for being stubborn :rolleyes: ).

So, if there is a solution to this, to get uninstall DirectX 9.0c and reinstall 9.0b, please enlighten me! :lookaround:

Nope. You cant go back a direct X version. Do you atleast do a system restore point?
