where can i find a version of directX

  rabbitrabbit 12:03 17 Aug 04

i need a version of directX (possibly 8.0?) for a seperate computer which runs windows 98. i've only been able to locate "updates" for versions of directX, but not the application itself.

If you go to click here and type in the version of directx you want(directx * download)it will find hundreds of places where you can download the fullsize files.I tried locating versions 5 and 8 but the sites it offered included games or just plain blind links.

M$ site for 8.0a for 98 click here

9c is the latest and is supported by windows98 click here most newer games and sound applications will ask that you install this to be able to play them so why use an older version?

ps. 8.1 click here but some new games may not work

It might be worth reading the Microsoft support FAQs about DirectX:
