    So its that time again another DirectX update has surfaced, though not necessary needed it is highly recommended for compatibility with the latest games.

    Well looks like they released the redistributable version, the web installer is still broken go figure.

    here the link and the SDK for the devs
    enjoy.

    If you've downloaded a dx web update installer before.. just use that one.

    updated just fine..but there is still no Redist listed on the site beyond the August update. Guess we will have to wait a while for that.

    if anyone is having trouble downloading the web installer I've got it hosted here.

    I'll host up the Redist as soon as it comes out.

    the redist is also included in the sdk.
    if you can't wait for the standalone redist to be released, just download the sdk and unpack it.

    For all having trouble with the web installer, download the november 08 SDK package here

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...9-689d-47ae-bdd0-056116ee8d16/DXSDK_Nov08.exe

    it should work on both xp and vista (directx9 and 10) both on x86 and x64 systems.

    once downloaded, open it with winrar and extract just the 'Redist' folder. Run the DXSETUP.exe in the Redist folder and you're done. I was thinking to put the rarred Redist folder on Rapidshare but I'm afraid M$ won't be happy about that so I'll leave it to you.
