How do I stop Nero installing directx 9 over 10

I have windows Vista and when I try to install Nero 7 it tries to install directX 9. The problem is Vista has directX 10 and I don’t want to overwrite it. Can anyone help?

Welcome to the forum.
It won’t overwriteDX10.
It should detect DX10 and carry on with installing Nero

Please help. Pretty please.

Hey Bob,

Dee-27 gave you the answer. Frankly, you’re not going to get a response from anyone who knows more than Dee.
I’ve never had an installation of a program revert directX to a previous version. Besides, you can always download and install directX10 from MS:

Hi :slight_smile:
Vista installs a kind of stripped down version of directX 10. Enough for microsoft purposes.
For some functions you need parts of version 9.
Nero is one such s/w.
However the version 10 is not overwritten it is simply added to.

Thanks for the help.
For some reason, when I sent the pretty please message, I could not see Dee-27’s reply. It is not that I didn’t believe her, it is just that I didn’t think anyone replied. Sorry about that and thanks again. I will give it a go.
