    Couldnt install DirectX update?

    Went to install the update for DirectX and the installation failed with error messege saying a cab file couldnt be trusted and to make sure Cryptographics was activated to verify the file.
    Cryptographic services in " services" is set to automatic and started so its running. Any ideas??
    Running Kaspersky AV, I shut it down when I ran the installer...Attached is the error Mess.

    Is this the web-based update? If so try the redistributable.

    OK, ran the Redist from the link, saved the files to disk and ran the setup exe, told me the product was ready to use so I'm assuming the updates were installed right, opened DXDIAG, but just says version 10. I'm guessing everything went OK. Thanks for the help John.

    Dx 10 shows up as that is the *latest* version installed on your computer.
