It messed up WMP and DviX player for me, 3D Mark and games still the same no improvement.(GF-4 Ti-4200) Did SYS Restore to go back, can be with out DviX or WMP. I also had to patch 3D Mark to get it to work, so if it doesnt run after you install DX9 go get the patch and it will.

They have now posted the DX9 download at www.microsoft.com/directx and have not only the web setup program but the 31.2MB redist version as well!

Download the Redistriputable like I did. It's only 32 mb.


DX9 works great for me. No problems, and a good performance increase in most areas.

Though I think there are a couple of issues ATi needs to fix with the Catalyst 3 (such as when you close something in the system tray the screen flickers).
