    I honestly don't know what's new but there are June 2010 files included. The Feb 2010 has 146 files while the June 2010 has 157 files for reference. I count 14 June2010 specific files which include both x86 and x64 cabs. I will update this post if there is any information that specifies what this update actually improves on. These files are:
    -June 2010 Xact
    -June DX11
    -June DX10
    -June DX9
    and few others that are not obvious as to what they are.

    Same thing as previous two users :D New version comes so far a part that even if there is almost nothing new it's better to update. And with the last year or so not needing even a reboot with the install, even better :)

    "extracting file failed, its most likely caused by low memory (low dosk space or swapping file) or corrupted Cabinet file "

    Well, if you know you have plenty of disk space and that your page file is large enough, then I would try redownloding directx.

    Sorry about that, I didn't want to clutter up the thread with what appeared to be posts relating to an isolated issue.

    I downloaded 4 or 5 times and no joy. On the fourth or fifth attempt I decided to use IE rather than Firefox and it worked; however, I'm not sure if that had anything to do with my success, maybe I just got lucky.

    Just create a New Folder on the desktop and extract to there, you can delete the folder once you have installed.

    As you can see, the deleted posts didn't offer much of a fix and I suggest you simply download repeatedly until you get it to work.

    I'd like to know why the latest DirectX runtime isn't on Windows Update. We wouldn't have keep checking back all the time for this, then. :rolleyes:

    Interesting, so it does appear that you should use IE, I thought I just got lucky when I switched to IE, but if it also worked for you there could be more to this than meets the eye. I'm glad you got it working.

    Mods, providing EastCoast is willing and assuming he will continue to post links to DirectX updates on a regular basis, couldn't he be given a stickied thread for this purpose?

    I'm not too familiar about the installation procedures of this. What do you do with all the files when they get extracted?

    Thnx
