hi all, first off I'll admit that although there might be old forums about this I'm too lazy to look through them :o so I apologize if this has already been answered, but my question is simply this: Is there an un-installer for directx 9? Ever since I installed it, I've apparently lost my AGP texture acceleration, so I would like to go back to 8.1....I find it ridiculous that Microsoft does not include an uninstaller for directx. Also, someone had given me a link to a site with a supposed uninstaller, but it didnt work. I'd hate to have to format my entire HD just to get rid of dx9 :rolleyes:

Hi FacelessCl0ck,

I have had a look around for similar problems. I found this:

After the successful installation I did not have "AGP Texture Acceleration" in DXDIAG enabled until I changed AGP Aperture size to 32 MB.

That's one thing, also other suggestions have been to update motherboard drivers (especially AGP miniport drivers if your board has them or the latest via 4-in-one drivers if you have a via chipset), vid card drivers etc.

I have very little info on uninstalling DX9, as far as I am aware it can't be done with any sort of success, however here is a page that claims to have a directX uninstaller, but only up to ver 8.1, I guess they will bring out a ver9 uninstaller eventually, but whether it works or not, and if you will be able to restart your machine after using it, is another thing altogether.

Good luck.

optik, that's the link you gave me before..and in order for that uninstaller to work you have to have windows XP or a .NET CD (whatever that is) and I don' have either.

hmm then try reseting to a restore point, usually XP will make one just before it installs DX9.

DirectX 9.0 is a system component and cannot be uninstalled. If there is a problem with the DirectX installation, it can normally be resolved by shutting down all running applications and reinstalling. As mentioned previously, DirectX 9.0 is fully backward-compatible with titles written for previous versions of DirectX. If you are having other problems after installing DirectX 9.0, these can often be resolved by installing updated drivers for your display card, audio card, or input device.

As with most software, users of Windows ME and Windows XP have the option of creating a “System Restore point" before installing. System Restore points allow you to roll back your operating system to a time before the software was installed. If you feel there are special circumstances which may necessitate removal of DirectX. It is recommended that you create a System Restore point. Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, and Windows 2000 do not support the "System Restore" feature.

thats from Microsoft so without a XP cd your screwed, no firends got it so ucould use it to uninstall dx9 ??
