Re: Directx problem

Hi DespisedMC and welcome to TSF !

Directx 9.0c is included in XP SP2 and XP SP3. Log on an admin account, go to start => run and type dxdiag to verify that it's properly installed.

Make sure you're trying to install and use that music software on an admin account. What software is it ?

Re: Directx problem

No need to reinstall directx if it's working properly. Click on the display, sound and music tabs and click on the test buttons to make sure everything's fine.

There's a warning on the main page of your program about updating the directx runtime (this is different from installing directx) before running the program. Did you use this link :
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en

Have you installed all the latest critical updates from Windows update ?

If you can't install the runtimes try downloading the missing dlls manually. Some programs require additional .dll files to work and I've often seen this with older games and d3dx....dll files. Download the missing d3dx9_37.dll file here (I tested it it's clean), then copy it in the root of drum machine (the folder where the main .exe file is located) and in the c:\windows\system32\ folder. Retry to start the program and see how it goes.
