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/board/index.php?s=&amp...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!

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?
