    Hi, I was installing Unreal Tournament and forgot to uncheck 'DirectX' as part of the installation.

    It didn't say anything about finding my newer version of directx (8.1) compared to the DirectX 7 on the UT CD...

    Did it overwrite my XP directx? or did the installation just ignore it and pass by the directx installation?

    It didn't give me a message or anything.

    In my Dxdiag, it says i have directx version 8.1...that means it didn't overinstall it right?

    Mr. Exi-XP you should be ok, you can always take a look at the dxfiagnostics afterwards, but I doubt it would attempt to install older files, you could, if you are worried, download the DirectX redistributalbe from microsoft ;)

    Older versions of DirectX...

    will not over-write newer versions.

    You SHOULD be fine, with no worries.
