Steam DirectX install
I am testing my entire Steam library of games with Crossover 13 and ranking them accordingly here on Codeweavers. I have a new question though:
When downloading and installing games via Steam, Steam will download and install necessary software, such as DirectX. Every time I launch a game, Steam tries to install DirectX again, even though it's all there. Is there any way to stop this?
Take a look at this thread:
Steam having trouble with redistributables
My crossties, usually contain the registry keys that get created upon successful install attempts so you won't see the DirectX installer pop-up... I think some of them still don't have them though.
LE: Even if the keys have somewhat predictable paths in the registry, the actual values vary in a not so predictable manner so one has to read the install scripts for each Steam application in part and create the correct registry keys and values.
sorry for responding a bit late to your post. I moved into a new apartment about four hours away from my last "home" and life got a bit stressy. But now... I am back! *echo*
I just wanted to thank you for the info you gave me. I'll check out the link tonight.
