YUp it asked me to install directx but i already did. the problem i can think of is, I installed the FEB 2006 version then DEC 2005 ver then the regular directx that came with my CD. And normally Directx can be seen on my remove program files but i cant see it

lol,ok... why would you install older versions after you put the feb.06 version on?

maybe reinstall the game and when it prompts you to install DX9.0c... say yes and leave it at that....
or maybe you can browse throught the cd for the DX install executable and just run that... but you may not be able to find it...
