Re: Need for speed most wanted direct x error

I am a new member here, probably this will be my only post and I was searching around google about the problem described on this thread and thanks to the screen shots I got the game working (I had the same problem, game said I had to install directx 9c...). Thanks.

Re: Need for speed most wanted direct x error

I only can say that this is weird, happens to me too, the only game I installed to test this problem is POP2, that uses directx 9c. Since this, the installation report s that error.

I have not tried the solution that is said above, but thanks, i have learned a new thing

Re: Need for speed most wanted direct x error

Hi babychar2002,
I have the same problem and doing the Windows 2000 compatiability thing didn't work for me too..

I wonder if there is any other way??
Seems like a common problem???

Re: Need for speed most wanted direct x error

Thank you muchly. Been having a nightmare with this. Win2000 compatibility fixed the problem. Cheers. For all of those that say this doen't work, ensure you click apply when you change compatability....

I am not too sure about that but what problem are you getting even after you applied the changes?

Re: Need for speed most wanted direct x error

If you are still having problems after changing compatability mode to Win 2000 then change the compatability mode to 98/ME. It worked for me

Re: Need for speed most wanted direct x error

Question
What do you do when you get a "DirectXSetupGetVersion" error during installation?
Answer
If you receive this error during installation try copying the DSetup.dll file from the install CD to the hard drive, and then try reinstalling the game.


Renaming the Direct X Setup File

1. From your desktop, go to the Start button then Programs or All Programs.
2. Next, find and launch Windows Explorer.
3. Once in Windows Explorer, go to the C:\Windows\System directory
4. Rename the DSetup.dll file (try DSetupbackup.dll). To rename a file right-click on the file and select "Rename" from the menu.


Now we will copy the dsetup.dll file from the CD, located in the DirectX folder, into the C:\windows\system directory.


Copying the replacement Direct X Setup File

1. From your Windows desktop, double-click on My Computer.
2. Now, just right-click on your CD-ROM drive with the install disk inside and select "Explore" from the menu.
3. Next, double-click on the DirectX folder.
4. Right-click on the DSetup.dll file and select "Copy" from the menu.
5. With the Windows Explorer window still open, browse the C:\windows\system directory.
6. Once inside of the System folder, choose “Edit", located at the top of the window, then “Paste" from the menu.
7. Run the install as normal. Once the installation is complete, erase the DSetup.dll file from Windows/System and then rename DSetupbackup.dll back to DSetup.dll.

Sorce

There is something that you can do with the autorun.cfg in the folder Autorun so that it wont ask you for it but i am not sure how (I am guessing that you put the attributes on hidden?).

Re: Need for speed most wanted direct x error

YESSSSS!!

I got the solution finally...

You are right babchar2002, you need to do the following:

1. After you mount the game image, copy all the files to you hard drive in one folder for example NFSMW.

2. Open the \NFSMW\Autorun folder..and then open the file autorun.cfg with Notepad.

3. Look for the parameter DirectXVersion=9.0c and change the 9.0c to 0 and save the file.

4. Run the Setup from your hard drive folder and ENJOY!!

I hope this helps...
