What's the most recent DirectX version?



New Member
I accidently installed DirectX when installing Radeon drivers and the DirectX version appears to be newer than 7.0a. When I reinstalled version 7.0a, DXDIAG told me I had a bunch of outdated files so I had to reinstall the DX on the Radeon CD. Now that I've returned the Radeon I don't have a version of DirectX to install if I had to. Is there a newer version of DX and where can I get it? Microsoft has 7.0a listed. Thanks.

7.0a is the most recent official version. There are beta versions of 8 around but i'm waiting for an official version of it before i download it and install it on my system.

7.0a is the most recent downloadable version of directx. Windows ME however has directx 7.1 built in. Like netdude said there are lots of version of DirectX 8 Beta out there as well. I would stick with 7.0a
