I just bought my copy of SB Pro PE. I thought I'd go ahead and install it while waiting for my Codemeter USB to arrive. My machine runs Windows 8.1.
The first thing I learn is that I need to install DirectX 9.0c. When I download and try to install 9.0c through "dxwebsetup," however, I'm told that I cannot install it on a Win 8.1 machine. I would need to have an older operating system for "dxwebsetup" to work.
Is there some way to properly install DirectX 9.0c on a Win 8.1 machine?
I just tried it, and it installed without a warning about my OS. However, it did seem at one point to be downloading what I assume are the latest DirectX files, which made me worry that it was getting DirectX 11 instead of 9.
Is there anywhere I can look to see that I have a DirectX 9.0c installation as well as whatever the latest DirectX is?
