JSI Tip 7583. Windows Update re-offers 819696, even though DirectX 9.0b is installed on your computer?

When you visit the Windows Update site, the scan re-offers 819696, even though DirectX 9.0b is installed on your computer.

This behavior will occur if either of the following is true:

  • The Version Value Name, a string (REG_SZ) data type, at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectX, contains a data value that is less than 4.09.00.0900.

  • The version of Quartz.dll on your system is earlier that the version delivered with DirectX 9.0b.

To workaround this behavior, Download and install dxwebsetup.exe.
