    DirectX 9 update just hangs

    Windows 2000 update for DirectX 9 starts and at about one half the install bar it just hangs. Any ideas about how to get past this?

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Are you logged in as an administrator? Have you disabled you anit-virus? Is this from Windows/Microsoft Update or a full download?

    Download DirectX 9.0c from

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

    and save it to your hard drive, then run the update and reboot your computer (usually the update itself reboots your computer after installation is complete). Connect to Windowsupdate website after rebooting and check for other updates.
