Hi guys, here is the problem,i am using windoxs XP,and i had deleted direct x folder in the registry since finding no way to uninstall the direct x. then i thougt that after reboot windows will reinstall the original direct x 8.1. but it never happen. and i think it might the reason i can't install any type of direct x. No matter how many time i had try...it still dispoint me.



After deleted the registry value, then i reboot. and i did install direct x 8.1 manually after windows din't reinstall it, and it doesn't show any problem during and after the installation. when i check the registry, there is a directx folder. and i though every thing is gonna be just fine, and when i check my directx using DXdiag, it show "directx version no found". And when i install any of the latest directx like 9.0c, 10 all show the same erro. I had try the system restore and it can't restore to the time i delete the directx.

Here is the error log:

The best solution is to reformat your hard drive and install fresh OS. Maybe you deleted some system files (important files) that needs to install or update direct x.
