This addon will "satisfy" the web installer, excluding Managed DirectX for .NET Framework.This addon does not contain anymore superfluous files, of these are infs and security catalogs.Q: But the DirectX Web Setup still needs to download some files. I have .NET installed.A: Make sure you also have the DirectX for Managed Code AddOn.Q: Why isn't d3dx10.dll included?A: d3dx10.dll is only installed in Vista because it's only installed in Vista. XP or Server 2003 won't have this file.Q: Do I need this addon with XP SP3?A: These runtimes are not included in XP SP3, so you will still need the addon in SP3 if you needed it in SP2. Some games require certain runtimes, SP3 doesn't change this.Q: How is the switchless installer built?A: The DirectX switchless installer was built using NSIS. You can find the sources here if you wish to build or update it yourself.DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer (Validation required) Edited December 10, 2009 by redxii Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
