Direct X updating question.....

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I had to reinstall windows last night, xp home. anyhoo, I updated xp home to sp2. I then proceeded to install the march 08 dx update.Everything went well, it finished fine. A few minutes later,after rebooting my pc I decided to run dxdiag and see if all looked ok.

As I looked down over the dx files, none of them showed a 2008 date. That can't be correct, can it? I know on my other machine when I ran the march 08 dx update, dxdiag showed me a bunch of files with a 2008 date.

I did rerun the march 08 update and it again ran fine installing a bunch of files, yet dxdiag does not show me any dx files with a 2008 date?

system ran 3dmark06 and the crysis gpu test ok, but still. Can anyone comment?

Thanks

so I should not worry about it? Perhaps I'll see what it does with the next update. Just weird that the same update for the same os behaved differently on my two rigs.

thanks!

*****ISSUE RESOLVED******

I had to reinstall netframework 2.0. I know there are more recent versions, but thats the one I had on disk. Anyhoo, sure enough after installing netframework 2.0, march 2008 dx ran and actually updated my dx files.

Could someone explain, exactly, what does netframework 2.0 do?
