My directx is fukn up so i uninstalled it.
I try and reinstall it but it dosnt work.
I go to windows/system32/directx but the folder is empty even after installing or so called again.
Also do i need to disk to reinstall it?
If so could i use cod4 since it has it on it i think :)

Can someone help me
Give me a link that i can download it from?

Ill try it now.

Also when i start a game or something it says
"The procedure entry point OpenVxDHandle could no be located in he dynamic link library KERNAML32.dll."

I downloaded the link and when i opened it it did the download and when it was installing it, It just went to the end and said it was finished even though its still the same.
Maybe its not fully deleted off my computer?
If its not, how should i fully delete it??

Start -> Run

If that loads and runs the tests then your DX install is fine and its something else causing the issue.

There are a couple of programs out there which flush DX completely from your system but I havent used one in so long Ive forgotten the name......

I typed dxdiag in run and cmd but neither work

I should also mention, when i open up a game or msn it says
"the procedure entry point OpenVxDHandle could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNAL32.dll."
