How can I get 8.1 installed Properly after putting ver 9b in?


Trying to get online with a game (Everquest). He was able to before, but when I upgraded his DirectX from ver 8 to ver 9b, we are now getting a message saying "You need at least Directx 8.1 to play EQ".

He has 9b installed but it still won't let him on. So I installed 8.1 again, but it puts an empty folder in the comp, there's no actual file in it.

How can I get 8.1 installed properly after putting ver 9b in? I'm thinking I shouldn't have to if I have a later ver already in there.

Any help greatly appreciated! Thx.

I would suggest you upgrading your operating system to windows xp You need at least windows ME or XP for the direct 9b to run properly Once installed you cannot uninstall Direct X 9b on your existing os system
