    I was wondering is directx 9.0 final still a beta or an offical release? I dont want to risk damaging my computer by installing it.

    Installed it last night, before the main MS page was even updated. Working fine here. :)

    I have it installed with the latest ATI Cat 3 drivers.. seems very stable so far.. I don't measure 3dmarks but it does "feel" a bit better.. I made a partition image just in case but it doesn't look like I'll need it..

    Things are running great for me as well. I also updated my ATI display drivers to the newest ones that take advantage of DirectX 9.

    I have installed directx 9 and this problem pop up. This application has failed to start because netdtect.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. I was wondering if any of you had this problem before and would like to know how to fix this.
