    XP SP2 and directx 9.0 c bug

    Can anybody check wether they are able to load directx 9.0c on windows Xp Sp2.
    the redidtributable when executed says that "you already have the components installed" and does nothing but when I try to check directx version with DXDIAG tool it says I have directX 9.0b.

    Does anybody have a solution.

    SP2 already includes DirectX 9.0c

    How long ago did you download SP2 ??

    Older pre-release versions of SP2 had DirectX 9.0b,and some users have experienced problems installing 9.0c on these versions.

    See this thread to download the latest SP2 release. (I recommend the Network install)

    I didn't download SP2.
    One of my friends gave me a CD having SP2 on it. the version is
    5.1.2600 V.2096 build 2600.(as listed by system information).
    Do you have a solution for this.
