For some reason, no mater what the installer comes from, im unable to install Directx on my computer. I went to look at the DXError.log and this is what it tells me.
Code:
--------------------
[02/26/06 13:21:53] module: dsetup32(Dec  5 2005), file: setup.cpp, line: 6663, function: CSetup::ExecuteInf

    Failed API:		SetupInstallFromInfSection()
    Error:		(5) - Access is denied.



    Unable to proceed C:\WINDOWS\System32\DirectX\DX25A.tmp\dsound.inf:[DefaultInstall]. The file may be damaged.

--------------------
[02/26/06 13:21:53] module: dsetup32(Dec  5 2005), file: setup.cpp, line: 6462, function: CSetup::InstallDirectXInfsFromInfSection

    Installation of 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\DirectX\DX25A.tmp\dsound.inf - [DefaultInstall]' failed.
Anyone know what it means and can help?

It's impossible to uninstall DX in anyway, there are however some programs that can do that but I don't think they work with the lastest version of DX. Either that or they install some old outdated version from your windows CD or something.

edit: oooh wait a minute, I have that exact same problem, I can't install any version of directX anymore because of the same error ^^

So, sorry, but now I REALLY can't help you. I figure the only way to get rid of it format + install newest version of directX but im pretty sure that's not what you're looking for.

Thats weird... I read "unable to install" as "unistall" too. Weird.

Try checking with the people who actually make directX, rather than the people who play HL mods.

My bad, I would try installing from another source, you may have a bad copy of the Direct X installer.

Do you have a pirated copy of windows running on your computer? I have noticed that certain problems may occur if you install from a degrading copy off of a CD-R. Notably, I've seen right clicking interfaces fail to initialize and crash win explorer, and I've seen .NET fail to install or decompress properly.
