Thread: Direct X 8

    Direct X 8

    I'm running Windows 98 on a 266 mhz with 96 RAM. When I try to install the new Direct X 8, it installs about a quarter of the way and then an error message pops up and says "Either not enough memory or a bad cab file." I've closed everything so that nothing is running except Explorer and I've downloaded the file several times from different sites, and I still get this. Can someone help me with this? Thanks.

    Go to your windows temp folder and empty it also if you have a c:Temp folder clear it also. I have read that this sometimes will help with the problem you described [img]/w3timages/icons/hairy.gif[/img]

    [img]/w3timages/icons/nuts.gif[/img]Try getting the latest version of the Windows Installer from MSs site, if you haven't updated that recently. That fixed a similar problem for me.
