Microsoft DirectX 9.0


DXSetup.exe is a standard installer that independent software vendors (ISVs) can use to install the Microsoft?DirectX?9.0 redistributable runtime. It provides an easy way for developers to install the DirectX 9.0 runtime without having to write a custom installer. The standard installer is included in the (SDK root)\Redist\DirectX9 folder.

DXSetup.exe uses the DirectSetup application programming interface (API) for version checking, setting up install type, displaying the end-user license agreement (EULA), installing DirectX, progress reporting, and message handling. DXSetup.exe displays all user interface (UI) components during the DirectX 9.0 installation. These include the click-through-EULA, progress meter, and message handling.

Developers who need to install the Managed DirectX component and are using the standard installer must perform the following steps.

  1. Before calling DXSetup.exe, verify the Microsoft .NET Framework is installed.
  2. Call DXSetup.exe with the /InstallManagedDX command line attribute.

The following is an example of how to use the standard installer for Managed DirectX.
