    DirectX Won't Install

    Went to the MS download site to download DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer and can only get as far as initializing the setup. After accepting the agreement I get this error message: An internal system error occured. Please refer to DXE-error.log and DirectX.log in your Windows folder to determine problem.

    I then downloaded DirectX SDK and it installed ok but I uninstalled it because I didn't need all it contained and thought that if it installed ok, the other basic one should too, but when I tried it again, I got the same error message.

    Any idea what is going on here? Thanks!!

    Sorry, but I don't know how to find the log error information. This was all I saw when I tried to do it. S
