How to uninstall direct X and reinstall ? or how to install the latest directx?

Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure my direct X is corrupted... My sound is not working good.. when I switch views  sound is dead.

 

When I try to reinstall or repair the PMDG 777, it does not install the direct X..it says I have the latest version of direct x and quits.

 

I went back to my P3D V2.3 and I now have the same problem since the direct x is is not right.

 

How can I uninstall direct x? and reinstall the latest? anyone?

Download the latest DirectX 11. Next, you'll have to go into Programs and Features>View installed updates. Find the one named KB2670838, and uninstall it. After that restart Windows and install the latest DirectX 11 that you downloaded. Restart Windows again to apply the update

 

Make a restore point before hand in case something goes wrong.

 

I've had some issues with DirectX not installing, but I usually did a repair install, but you probably want to keep your stuff, so this is a bit cleaner way of doing it.

Thanks JEff

 

I have Win 7 64 bit/./. But I am not sure which of those I should download.

 

It seems scary! LOL :)

Did it fix anything?

 

If not, I would look into doing a clean install of your sound drivers. As well as getting the most up to date ones.
