    DxDiag (WinXP Home SP1)

    Does anyone know if our friends at MS have come out with an updated dxdiag.exe utility that will now handle & test MS Dxdiag <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold">v 9.0</span hi> ? The one with XP only tests to Version 8 and comes up with the following errors. I'm sure that these aren't REALLY errors because of the newer version installed (9)
    and it advises to install the latest version. It's only looking for version 8 and doesn't know what to make of Version 9 !
    I have searched the MSKB and come up empty.

    The rest refers to old version 8 etc. I don't have any problems that I know of but then again....who knows?

    Any ideas or knowledge of a newer dxdiag?

    Re: DxDiag (WinXP Home SP1)

    When I installed DirectX 9, it updated DxDiag.exe to - the version installed with my Windows XP Home was 5.1.2600.1106, dated 9/11/2002, and the version I have now is 5.3.0.901, dated 12/12/2002.

    Hans,
    You are 100% right. Apparently I had an old copy of dxdiag in my "utilities" folder and used that. I did find AND use the correct version (5.3.0.901) this time BUT the results were the same errors.

    Bob--

    I don't think there is one. If you Download Direct X 9a from the Direct X Homepage I think it will update you to the newest version of Dxdiag just as it did Hans. It has known bugs as MS acknowledges this thread and there will be references to older versions of Direct X as you put it throught it's paces.

    It seems to me that your installation of DirectX 9 is not complete. I have attached a small screenshot of what I see on my PC.
    DirectX can't be uninstalled; I don't know if it is possible to run the installation again to repair it. Can you load a system restore point from before the upgrade, or have you installed other software since installing DirectX 9?

    Bob--

    Sometimes the whole google thread in flat mode won't link to the lounge--so I had to fix this (link wouldn't work so I went to the one answer I wanted you to see) and you might not have seen the thread. It may touch on part of what I think is bothering you--I have several references to Direct X 8 in some of the printouts also--and this may be one of the bugs or normal--not sure. Those errors may be part of the bugs, but as you say you have gotten the latest tools. MSN has 7 Direct X groups monitored by their DirectX people--you might want to put this up on the one that seems best--it may be your fastest way to get them directly involved. I have noticed that with respect to any of their WMP groups or Direct X their teams monitor problems closely and are responsive very quickly--minutes and hours often.

    Re: DxDiag (WinXP Home SP1)

    SMBP,
    That post described EXACTLY the problem I WAS having. While the thread was a little difficult to follow, the gist seemed to be, reinstall Directx 9. I downloaded it again from MS, installed it again and it cleared up all of those error messages. All tests run without any problems found.
    I thank you for your help. <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Re: DxDiag (WinXP Home SP1)

    Hi Hans,
    See my reply to SMBP. Had to be a "blown install". The re-install did the trick and my result page looks like it should. (as yours does).
    Thanks much for your help, Hans. <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>
