Unreal Tournament

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
