Direct x 5.0 problem!

[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung Notebook 1.2 GHz Q series. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]My son is trying to download a new copy of an old game monkey island 3. It says he must install direct x 5.0, which he has done but it says it cannot find it. I have had this before, does he have to install it to a certain location? I don’t know? Please can someone help?
By the way i am not at all sure if that is the make or model of his laptop but i had to put something!

Where is he downloading MI3 from?

Geez, directx is up to version 10 now, you shouldn’t have to install an older version. On a side note: I bought the Monkey Island games for some nieces and nephews when they first came out and all I can say is that they were incredibly difficult to play. Some of those puzzles took days to figure out. Good luck to your son, I hope he likes a challenge.
