Hi Rex,

You don't really need direct X 7, rather you should get the latest one 8.0 or 8.1 (But I know 9 is about to be released). As each Direct X update still incorporates the older version only they are updated to handle more app's.

This is especially evident should you try to run the latest Madonion benchmarker as you need to upgrade from 8.0 to 8.1 to run it.

Cheers,

Daniel

If you are adement on getting your hands on old direct X versions, go to www.downloads.com and type in direct x in the search field and you should be good to go.

Also Downloads.com is fantastic for finding those pesky apps that you lose when you format or there is an update. if i am looking for software I go here first.
