I am trying to install Need for speed Carbon on windows XP SP2. But for some reason after I put in the cd key and then agree to the end user lic. agreement it tells me that the setup cannot be completed because I need DirectX 0 or higher. Even though I have the most recent version of DirectX on my comp.

The same thing happens for NFS:Most Wanted. Except it tells me I need DirectX 9.0c or higher, which I already have, if anyone has any idea why this is happening or how to fix it, that would be greatly appreciated.

Well that supports 9.0. So reinstall direct x 9.0.

If that doesn't work check your visual settings to see if the computer is even reading that you have direct x 9

Yea, I downloaded and installed directx 9.0c. Is there anyway to completly remove it then reinstall it? Also my computer does recognize that I have directX 9.0 or I wouldnt be able to play any games.

Your graphics drivers are installed?
GO download ATI Catalyst Control Center 7.4 if not.
