|Microsoft DirectX 9.0|
This section provides information about the DirectSetup component of the Microsoft?DirectX® application programming interface (API) in the Microsoft Platform Software Development Kit (SDK) or the stand-alone DirectX software development kit (SDK).
This section includes the following topics:
DirectSetup is a simple API that provides one-call installation of the DirectX components. This is more than a convenience; DirectX is a complex product and installing it is an involved task. You should not attempt to install DirectX manually.
DirectSetup includes several API functions and structures. It also includes a prototype DirectXSetupCallbackFunction that can be defined by an application to customize the user interface during the installation process. The DirectX SDK includes a sample application that demonstrates the use of this callback function.
If you don't want to create your own custom installation, you can use the DXSetup.exe standard installation provided with the SDK.
