As mentioned, it comes with SP2 and there is also a verison that was ripped from one of the service packs. I've used both without any issues.

IAmNotAGeek has a download location and installation instructions for DirectX 9.0c. Windows Service Pack 2 is not required.

http://www.iamnotageek.com/articles.php?aid=85&page=1&topic=DX_9c

If anyone knows of a link with directions on how to uninstall DirectX 9.0c, please add them to this thread.

I would think that Windows XP creates a restore point when installing DirectX 9.0c. An alternative would be to use a tool like Norton Ghost to save an image of your WindowsXP partition before installing DirectX 9.0c.

A safer alternative is to use a tool like Norton Ghost to save an image of your WindowsXP partition before you install DirectX 9.0c.

Bah... I am cavalier. If it breaks... i'll just fix it.
Yes, I know... :screwy:

(it only takes me about an hour to rebuild xp so its no big loss if i hose something up)

I understand since Norton Ghost is rather expensive. But if you like to tinker and something goes wrong, you can use a previously created Ghost emergency boot disk and restore your system in a matter of minutes from a backup.

Rats, SP2 is huge!

Looks like I'll need to have a friend with a cable connection download and burn it for me.

Sorry, W2K doesn't have a new service pack and won't for at least 6 months or more.

I downloaded SP2 and went to install it only to be told it didnt like my activation code. I used a activation code cracker for SP1, if you did the same (and lets face it many of us did) then you'll need a new code for SP2 and so far I cant find one.

noko was probably referring to DX9c alone, not the whole SP.

And, btw, it's a good question. Does anyone know if and when will M$ supply DX9c as a standalone package w/ support for W2K and W98 (yeah, there are quite a lot of ppl still using it. Not me, but there are...) ? :)

XP Pro SP2 RC2 is the most stable Windows version ever IMHO. I especially like the system restore & backup features, enhanced firewall, internet explorer enhanced security, built in popup blocker, and the list goes on. I even installed Media Player 10 beta. And using beta Forceware drivers too..

For all beta software it still works a whole lot better than SP1 ever did.

I still think they should of done an SP2 with just security fixes and we would of gotten that a year ago.

Then one with all the OS changes. This was the longest wait for a service pack I ever remember. Something like 2 years.
