    I wonder if they changed anything this time, I remember when 3DMark06 was released, I found myself having to upgrade from DirectX 9.0c to DirectX9.0c (identical before you triple check) before it would run properly.

    Actually horribly inept process management. It indicates a total lack of configuration management. They fire people where I work for doing something that stupid. Date/time stamps are not valid control methods.

    So if the files are the same that means this is just another MS ploy to thrash out people who refuse to adopt the MS validation spyware hidden in the guise of a required update..

    Well seems the spyware non-sense is only required for the web install, you can get the "download" here without the spyware. :)
