    Problem installing NFS Carbon Demo..

    Hi Guys,

    I recently downloaded the demo, and when I try to install it it gives me an error about 2 min in saying that I need an updated version of DirectX (it says that it needs DirectX 0 to install properly)....I'm assuming it means 10?? Is that even out yet.

    I checked the system requirements and it mentioned DX9 compatible cards work ok. My specs are listed in my sig...

    I downloaded it via torrent, is it possible that it's maybe corrupt or something? Is there an official download for it on EA's site?

    You need the latest DirectX DLLs. Every month Microsoft releases an updated DirectX installer with some new DLLs.

    create a shortcut to the exe file that runs the game. right click on the shortcut and go into properties and run it in windows 2000 compatibility.
