hi..i also still have problem when installing directx 9.0c ..when i run it it seems like the setup have install the directx 9.0c..but not it isn't...also wanna know how the hell i wanna install this directx 9.0c
I had the cabinet file error whenever I tried to download DirectX 9.0c from microsoft. I have Windows ME, and I did a Windows Update (start then windows update), and I downloaded DirectX 9.0c from there, and it worked perfectly.
FINALLY! I go out and spend $59 on the sims2 game and it doesnt work! thank-you! Ive searched the web for days and found nothing thank-you again for your help!
I have Windows XP. Every time I go to Microsoft.com, and download DirectX 9.0, it downloads, and then at the very end, it says cabinet file cannot be trusted. Windows Update won't run (something about ActiveX)
The article you just commented on has several ideas and things to try.
I have Windows98SE. I fixed mine by installing the latest version of IE. Hope this helps.
I have this same problem too with this, for a cool game called Need For Speed: Underground 2. The same annoying cabinet file error comes and I can't install from the CD either. To the point, I've tried all of those suggestions listed except for repairing windows because I do not wish to back-up all my like...50 GB worth of stuff. Also, I hear DrectX 9.0c can run on Win. XP: SP1, so I do not want to update to SP2 either. Anymore suggestions? Yes, I did read the article and tried the other options, but none of which seem to work...
Well, I have fixed the problem. To do so though, I had to install SP2 and install the updates.
My suggestion to those of you who have had the same problem as myself: "cabinet file cannot be trusted." Yes, i know it is very frustrating and i got my game for christmas and here it is now july and im just now able to play it. I finally got directx 9.0 to install so heres what i did (I have Windows XP):
First, i made sure that my cyptographic services were on.
Then i uninstalled my current version of directx (8.1) with direct x eradicator
After my system rebooted, i went to run and typed in 'dxdiag' to check what version of directx was on and at this point, it should say 'Version not found' and at this point, make sure that your sound dlls and everything is still there. Then i went to microsoft and i was finally allowed to install directx9.0. After installing 9.0 go back to dxdiag and make sure that your files are working properly. If directx eradicator somehow messed up anything, go to start>assesories>system tools>system restore. and this will restore your computer to the state it was in before directx eradicator. Hope this helps. If any questions just post or email me.
