can't DirectX be integrated? replacing existing files so that it won't cost extra space?


Ofcourse I meant integrating in Windows, not in Windows Setup.
I don't like add-ons/installing apps from svcpack. Rather have my apps installed by RunOnceEx @T12/13.
This way I can simply use the original installers and I am independent of any user-created installer.

Thanks for the info about HFSLIP, but I decided not to do it... have to learn about hfslip.. too hot for that :)

Stupid question of the day, but why are there monthly updates to DirectX and do they benefit desktop users?

Not stupid. It's simply that this is really weird

http://www.msfn.org/...p...st&p=491354. ;)



Yes, they are mostly useless for end users. Apparently, Microsoft updates DirectX every two months.

The only people that really benefit are gamers who must use those updated modules/files.



I thought we had come to the conclusion that these bi-monthly DX updates were for devs and mostly useless to end users... :unsure:



You probably noticed MS updated "DirectX for managed code".

AFAIK Avalon (vista's UI) will be written in managed code/C#.

IMHO these releases are public "betas" and MS probably wants user feedback.

And btw, ever heard of Orbit Dock (uses .Net and these weird new directx files ;) ) ?

Hi, Rick :hello: Sorry for slow reaction!

1 This is just only directx. Full package.
2 I don know if its better. I just know that it works.
3 If you read thru my post you will see i used /silent ;but you must unpack the downloaded file! I use winrar to unpack.

Hope that did answar you're questions?

This DX is an installer that runs during setup, it doesn't integrate in your Windows.
Especially for Windows XP, it is a waste of CD/DVD space to use the full installers that are presented in this topic.

B)-->
QUOTE(chris.b @ Dec 22 2006, 03:37 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

You could take Serebys DirectX Slipstream that integrates only the newest files of the december release.
You have to keep DX in nlite of course and it's a direct Slipstream no silent installer.
[/quote]

It really integrates, replacing files with the newest version (DX december). So it's not an installer. It will hardly use more space on your cd/dvd.
Since it integrates and updates your DX files, it's not meant for Windows2000 since 2000 doesn't have DX.

So the installers in this topic are good for Windows2000. And Sereby's integration pack is good for XP.

hfslip ^^


I did try that. It made my virgin source smaller and added the newest dx files over the ouder one. But when i did install i got a lot more missing files messages. Should i do the hfslip after in done the nLite thing?
Well i gues i try it later again on my windows drive after i run scandisk en defreg.

Well i'm happy my silent installer works fine :P

Well in the and i didn't try the hfslip any more.. I simply used my own silent installer (run from runeonce) ore a small addon that add's just the new files to the xp cd. Latest version found here: http://www.ryanvm.ne...opic.php?t=6010

But hfslip should work to slipstream directx into the xp cd. I didn't got it done my self at that time. Just might work great now!? The hfdlip programs is self explaning if you want to give it a try.
