Direct X version 7 uninstalled?



New Member

I bought an Asus AGP video card which came with Direct X Version 7.

I installed a game about year and a half old, and it said during installation that it would be installing Direct X media. It did not prompt me and indicate that a newer version was detected?

Did it wipe out Direct X Version 7 for the older version?

I have SiSoft Sandra Basic and in the Direct X info it shows Direct X 4.00??.

How else would I determine what type of Direct X I have installed? I went into the Direct X folder to find the readme file , but there is'nt one.

If I lost Direct X 7, should i reinstall it? and everything will be fine?

thanks for any advice

Any older version of DX or part of DX stops installing when detects newer DX version.

You did not louse your DX7.

You can get to know the direct X version by starting the direct X diagnostic program in the folder c:\programs\DxDiag.Ink
