LMAO, #47!! You actually compared yourself to a competitor's product to justify why this program even exists? So what does Reinstall Direct X REALLY do?

I would be v ery curious to find out how much of a problem this might be. I have been around PC's since they first hit the market and personally have never had a single problem with Direct X which could not be resolved by simple update.

This is not a frivolous comment, I sincerely would like to know about this.

WARNING! What if this program in its 24.3MB secretly hides some of the capabilities of the other computer programs from this company such as keylogger, skype recorder, MAC Scanner, Surveillance Monitor (or audio recording ?) etc. or makes some kind of wedge into DirectX to replace some commands with its own special... for secret purposes?
(EZ rings a bell.)

In looking at their “Home” page one sees that most of their other programs are also just linking shells to Windows modules as is this appears to be. Very unfortunate choice for GOTD.
And I have to wonder if this qualifies as a “review” as their site says: “Write a review to at least one of our software to get a big discount.

Please let me know which programs of us are also linking shells to Windows modules. If you cannot tell us, you just a spanish athlete.

Yes, this is a review, and you can contact us for your coupons.

Quote from wiki:
Microsoft DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces (APIs) for handling tasks related to multimedia, especially game programming and video, on Microsoft platforms. Originally, the names of these APIs all began with Direct, such as Direct3D, DirectDraw, DirectMusic, DirectPlay, DirectSound, and so forth. The name DirectX was coined as shorthand term for all of these APIs (the X standing in for the particular API names) and soon became the name of the collection. When Microsoft later set out to develop a gaming console, the X was used as the basis of the name Xbox to indicate that the console was based on DirectX technology.[1] The X initial has been carried forward in the naming of APIs designed for the Xbox such as XInput and the Cross-platform Audio Creation Tool (XACT), while the DirectX pattern has been continued for Windows APIs such as Direct2D and DirectWrite. DirectX is not a simple program which you can take as a media player.

When to use this DirectX Toolkit?
When you are running a game or a program which needs DirectX:
* d3d*.dll or ddraw.dll is missing.
* failed to initialize dinput9.dll.
* fatal errors occur to dplay.dll or dplayx.dll.
* black/blank/blue screen.
* endless loop/pulsating/no audio playing.
* incompatible DirectX versions.
* registry error which was caused by DirectX.
* damaged DirectX core program.
* invalid operation error under Win7/Vista.
* any popup warning message which shows fatal DirectX error code.

Can I reinstall/uninstall DirectX directly to repair my DirectX?
It depends. If you are facing a fatal DirectX error, that won't work. With the Repair tab, you can completely restore DirectX to the original state without any errors or missing files. Maybe you will say that you can use the restore point to restore DirectX. Yes, you can. But all the other files' changing after the restore point will be lost. With our Reinstall DirectX EZ, only the DirectX files will be recovered in minutes.

Tip: you need to restore DirectX to the original state before you can authentically upgrade DirectX to a higher version or reinstall it to a lower version. Such as DX10 to DX11 and DX11 to DX10.

I am a gamer. Almost 95% of my computer time is used for playing games. I see DirectX Installation request when installing some older games - and even some newer ones, depending on the developer's os. LOL

When asked to install it (and I don't care which version it wants), I tell it that it's OK to install. Most of the time I get a message telling me I already have the files needed to play the game, and I say good-byb to DirectX until the next "picky" game.

I HAVE NEVER HAD A FATAL ERROR HAVING TO DO WITH DIRECTX. I'm not even sure it's possible to get one.

I have decided not to install this software because I agree with many prior posters here - "It doesn't DO anything except tell you what to do." And if I ever get a Fatal Error, it's Windows Restore Point for me - which I set before downloading ANYTHING.

I got some good software last week GOTD, but this is not one of your best offerings. Sorry.

I think often that lot of the software here is treated unfairly.

This however is truly worthless.

I have to think back to windows 98 to recall any problems regarding DirectX.
All you have to do with XP is rerun directX setup, if you had problems, that were only present after updating video drivers, but that was rare. Nothing needed for Vista/Win7.

It is possible to have problems regarding openGL and old games but that is rare these days and is not a directX problem.

This is pure snake oil.

The first thing AthTek should do is hire a proofreader to check the spelling and grammar on their Web site. Then they should actually tell everyone - truthfully - exactly what this software will, and won't, do. Most of what I see is just good, old Jabberwocky. I've been a MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer" and I'm a quite dedicated gamer and I've never, ever, seen a problem with DirectX

If only all software was as reliable as directx. Never had a problem with it other than wrong version. I have been in the industry since before the dawn of PC's and have never seen or heard of this "fatal directx error". Re-installing directx if you had to is so easy and never had "many junk files left in your system". Do these guys know what they are talking about. Maybe they should stay away from PC's if they are able to break them that badly.

Complete bullocks this tool and claim. Dxdiag is part of DirectX and a DirectX problem doesnt fu ur OS. Just reinstall DirectX. I am a gamer since 1996, work in the IT and know very well my way around with pc's and OS. All my DirectX problems could be solved easely. Without any reinstall of an OS. Never. Never needed either. As many others already responded also. Normally i wouldnt react on software but this claim and software is to stupid for words. As one already said. Even if i got money to install it i wouldnt take it.

I didn't test this today. But I will make a suggestion which I hope proves useful to the author. In short, a day or two ago I had to reinstall all my .NET Framework.

That's uh, 1.0 SP1-SP3, 1.1 SP1, 2.0 SP1-SP2, 3.0 SP1 -SP2, 3.51 SP1, 4 Client, 4 Full and then many I think 22 each hotfixes which don't always install without knowing the right uninstall/reinstall sequence.
I think I even had to tell windows update not to show the last one.

Sure would have liked an automated solution. IT was nearly an all day affair.

But say in the future that you have an issue with DirectX, then you would use this program to resolve the problem.

The question haas been asked, " How do I know if I have a DirectX problem?" You would see the error box for the program that you are running indicate an error about DirectX or you would see it mention in the Windows error logs.

It must be an occurrence that happens because long and behold, there is another product on the market that performs the same function.



It's called DirectX Happy Uninstall.

It's description is as follows.

5) Is your DirectX file damaged or missing?

I just spoke with a Microsoft tech support, they claim that DirectX does not need to be removed, ever.
The updated version has all of the previous features and when installed, wipes out the previous same version number parts from the system and installs the new version DirectX.

Your software is nothing more then instruction of how to dowload and re-install DirectX.

Well . . . I am a gamer, full time as well, but this software ? Can I sell the grass out of the collector bags on my lawn tractor ? Reading this software, I believe that people will sell anything, their first born as well !

With the amount of money a gamer spends on a top of the line gaming PC and the price of windows 7-64 bits ultimate and the amount of time we spend on the computer and online ? Don't you know that we are already aware that Direct-x is FREE !!!!! and that most of us always have the latest version already downloaded on the desktop ready to re-install? Yeah, direct-x, not windows ? If your software can fix blue screen errors, so be it, but windows re-install because of DX? Never heard of it, it's always something else and even that can be fixed 99% of the time using a boot/repair DVD.

I've been gaming and fixing PC's (for free as well) for 18 years and this is such a load of bull, makes me sick . . .

OK so what is the point of a program to fix problems NO ONE has ever had? No one I know has ever had a DirectX problem, other than "get the latest version." No Notepad problems, no clock problems, no DirectX problems. Vaporware.

Yes that would be a much better name for this software, that is Direct X Toolkit, however as already said I can't see any use for this at the moment. I've been playing games using Direct X since the early days of direct X and have never ever had a problem with any installation. Maybe the more complex DX 11 may pose problems as it is utilized more and more. As yet there are not that many games utilizing the full glory of DX11. We shall have to see. :)

That said, all I've ever done when updating direct x i to go to Microsoft, download the zipped file, unpack and install. It seems rather excessive to create a program such as yours unless as i mention above in my first comment you enable an automatic installation to the correct place without the user having to do anything other than click on a button to start the process. With this software it feels like the user has to do most of the donkey work. I really don't get it? If you can give me some example of how this software could be used I'd be most grateful.

I don't mean to sound ungrateful, nor do I want to lambaste your software. If there was a genuine use for this I'd be the first to use it as I'm always updating Direct X when there is a new update and 'love' tool kits

Thank you.

I'm the king of the gamers and have all three DirectX's (7,10,11) installed in my system.
I play games sometimes 10 hours a day and never had an issue with directx.

My only problem is when the game is to slow or has sub standard system or video calls and not using directx sub routing properly.

Installing or re-installing Directx is not a solution to any game problems. This software is not an alternative to fix any directx problem, but I suspect the expiration date given to this software will cause a problem and disable your directx at a certain date and time and force you to either buy extended license or re-install your operating system in a future date.

There is no need for this 'tool' at all. If you have Vista or Windows 7, then to install or update the latest direct X (10 or 11), go to Windows Update. For other Windows operating systems, and for games requiring DirectX 9, download and run the DirectX Web Installer from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=35
and if that one doesn't work for some reason, you can download the current latest full full version of DirectX 9 from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8109

The only time I ever had a Direct X "error" was when I was running Win 98SE and had an issue with an ATI vid card. Nobody in their right mind would pay for something they can do quicker, less painlessly and for free on their own. All this is is a Scam, taking advantage of those that are totally incompetent with their computer. I'm disappointed that GOTD allowed something like this on their site.

AthTek you need to give actual examples, like in game xyz, failure to connect to server can be fixed by using this program to...? or things like that.

How would we know there is a problem with DirectX? I mean we all have occassional mysterious problems. I can spend all day tracking some of them down, but like a lot of people I just need a quickly working computer, so do a system restore. How will I know that I could have used your program instead to have fixed the problem?

That is the feeling I am getting from the comments so far - That we either get very few faults with DirectX, or they appear as mysterious problems that are not even recognised as DirectX problems and so get fixed by other methods anyway?

I have just checked out Add/Remove Programs and even Revo - Neither can remove DirectX, they do not list it. Revo might be able to do it in Hunter Mode. Even Remove Windows Components in Add/Remove Programs does not list DirectX.

Does your program know what the best version of DirectX is for each game? Does it "tweak" something for each game, or maintain just one copy of each version of DirectX that all games can use and it deletes all the duplicate copies of DirectX then? WHAT exactly does it do for gamers? - Speed up playing over the Internet or something? I like so many, just do not know what you program is offering me that cannot be achieved by simply downloading and reinstalling the latest version of DirectX compatable with the Operating System, or a System Restore?

You really need to properly tell us what benefits your program is offering to us?. Sorry, just my personal thoughts.

I have read so many times that people don't get things to work in a x64 system. A little tip to all of You:

Right click shortcut to startfile or the startfile and choose COMPABILITY tab and then choose Windows XP and click APPLY.

That is most often what is needed to make software work in x64 systems. You can even do the same with the setup file to software that refuse to be installed on a x64 system. (Ofcourse it doesn't work for all software, but for most of them)

Just a little tip.

#4 Sepp: The only DirectX problem I ever had, and this was when installing a game, is the lack of one dll (whose name I forgot). It seems that this dll is only used by games, but for some reason the standard Microsoft installation does not include it.
This missing dll is the reason why the CDs of most games contain a DirectX installation folder or that their installation asks to reinstall DirectX.

If all these negative comments are right, and I have no reason to doubt them as they sure sound like they know what they're talking about; then GAOTD should perhaps give consideration to whether it might be in their best interests to pull this offer to avoid being any further associated with what seems to be bordering on a scam. I don't want to come across as hypercritical, just suggest GAOTD may want to protect it reputation.

We named this software as "Reinstall DirectX" just because we found that "reinstall directx" had been mentioned all the time when DX error occured. Maybe we should change the name to "DirectX Toolkit" or something else.

The only time I've run into any DirectX problems was when it wasn't up to date. But there's been so little in the way of changes lately and almost all problems are solved by simply re-installing the software, not the operating system. It's never been the "traditional way" to solve the problem.

I'd rather see something that helped resolve graphics issues in general. There have been many times I can't run a game and it would help to know whether it's a problem with the lack of support on the graphics card or whether it's a software issue. A series of tests on the graphics card would help determine exactly what features are supported.

I suspect the fee is necessary so they can pay for the DirectX license. I honestly can't see any other reason for it.

Wouldn't any DirectX 'problems' be remedied by re-installing DirectX? Not bashing the developer, because maybe there is something re-installing won't do. But there again, I'm just asking because the name of the software has "Reinstall DirectX" in it's name.

I have had a Direct X issue once in 10 years. Performing a quick System restore to a past check point solved the problem.

I don't see a reason to have this software installed just in case I get a Direct x issue that can't be put right by rolling back to a check point.

If the day ever comes when I need this software then maybe I will buy it, but then again I would probably just reinstall windows.

It's not just shortcut to MS website and your original Windows OS install CD. It can help you to flexibly reinstall/uninstall DX9-DX11 on your computer. It can also backup and restore DX for future use.

The function you have mentioned is piece of cake to Reinstall DirectX EZ. Maybe you think you can fix DX issues with reinstalling the DX package. But I have to tell you that there would be many junk files left in your system. You are not able to get a 100% secure DX with just reinstalling.

What I must say, DX error is not a piece of pizza that you can meet everyday. Reinstall DirectX EZ is not a program you can download and put into use right away. But once a fatal DX error happens, you will find use of this Direct Toolkit.

Actually, you just install the DirectX Redistributables on top of the current DX version and everything works. Sounds like someone should take the following advice:

If you have issues with DirectX and you're running Windows XP or a newer Windows operating system and you're 100% sure the software is compatible with your operating system, stop using your computer immediately. It's not your software or your hardware that's causing those problems, it's you. You are the cause of those problems 100% of the time. Gamers haven't had issues with DirectX in a long time. This is a software made by not so smart people to people that are even less smart, but somehow have too much money on their hands (to put it nicely).

As a great grandfather who's been messing around with computers and game consoles since the days of the 'adam'(pre ti94a) the only directx problem I've ever had was a missing component or wrong version.If they have to re-install OS to fix dx probs they're in the wrong business.
