Cannot get Directx to Download.. Did directx server get shot?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Its been 2 days so far and i cannot get Directx to install on my PC.

Everytime i try to connect to get the download the web installer it will freeze then tell me that i couldnt connect to the download server Pls try again later.

Or it says to check my networking card and so on...

But i can surf pages and download drivers from nvida and creative so im guessing that i should be able to download and install directx.

Well, is there anyone else experiencing what im getting now with the download freezeing?

Sounds like an issue with MS's DL service. Is your copy of Windows genuine?

Maybe antivirus or something. Try the redistributable

Check out this forum thread on downloading DirectX 9.0c. This worked for me when other driver downloads from Microsoft didn't.
