been looking for the full download of DirectX 9.0? and not the web installer. Micrososoft has released the links for these files.

Microsoft® DirectX® is a group of technologies designed to make Windows-based computers an ideal platform for running and displaying applications rich in multimedia elements, such as full-color graphics, video, 3-D animation, and surround sound.

System Requirements:
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP

• DirectX 9.0 End-User Runtime setup minimizes the download size but requires an internet connection during setup. The DirectX 9.0 Redist is available for download for those users that do not have an internet connection available during installation or Setup has trouble connecting to the Microsoft server.

• The DirectX 9.0 runtime cannot be uninstalled, so I recommend Windows Millennium and XP users create a “System Restore” point before installing. For information on creating a restore point, please refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:

Windows Millennium Edition: Microsoft Knowledge Base article 267951.
Windows XP: Microsoft Knowledge Base article 310405.
