Direct9.0c unattended

Recommended Posts

Hey, now that the final DirectX 9.0c has been released, how do we get it to install silently? Any suggestion? Do we need to hex-mod it again, or some switches would work with it? :) thanks!

It won't really be necessary. SP2 is just around the corner now and it will have DirectX 9.0c included :)

hmm. true...

I'll get a modified dxsetup.exe up in a bit

EDIT: Nope no luck, although the old modified exes works, but I can't say for sure how safe this is as there's a 5KB difference between dx9.0c's exe and dx9.0a's exe

There's no switch available for the redist, you still have to get the OPK-type installer from the right place. Did you read this while downloading dX9C?

DirectX 9.0c has a silent instal (no UI, and no reboot) which is available to Microsoft Volume License Customers (VLC) on the following Microsoft Volume License Site (MVLS). This is a Multi-lingual package which does not require an internet connection during installation.

More details here : DirectX 9.0c Redistributable for Software Developers - Multilingual

Maybe one of you leet people has access to the VLC site?

To post a public link for us all to download?

Nopes!

The directX setup api method will need to be re-done with the new SDK.

The old compiled exe (may or) may not work - and if it did work, there might be some problems - best thing to do would be to remake your exe.

I hexedited dxsetup.exe at offset 0x359B and changed 0x74 to 0xEB. Then the /OPK switched worked again.

Note that I have done it with the german version, but the old hacks worked for 9.0b, so you may try this.

EDIT: I took the dxsetup.exe from the 9.0c redistributable

From the readme:

1) ManagedDX.cab may be excluded if support for DirectX for Managed

   Applications is not required for your applications.

2) DirectX.cab and BDA.cab may be excluded if your application is not

   supported on version of Windows 95, 98, 98 Second Edition or Millenium.

Q839643 is included in 9c and can't be applied anyway.
