Do you have a link for Directx for xp?

  michaelw 14:53 18 Jan 11

My Directx is not working and I can't install Flash Player 10 because the DSOUND.dll is missing or corrupt. So I want to rectify the problem by reinstalling Directx. I'm running round in circles on the MS site and can't find it.

This is the latest full version click here / click here.

This is the latest webinstaller version click here (smaller overall download size). G

Thanks, but I downloaded and tried to install Directx but got an error that it couldn't procede with the installation as DSOUND.dll was missing. The dll site doesn't actually give a download for dlls, it just gives the runaround.

I've run a sfc and the problem is still there. next stop is an xp repair. I'll let you know.

Dll file download is under Resources lower down. G

The downloaded dll file seems OK, if a bit old.

So if your sfc scan doesn't work, PM me & I'll send you a newer DSOUND.DLL version. G

Cheers for all your help.
