Installing DirectX 9.0c

Postby Zombiedeth » Sun Jun 26, 2016 7:45 pm

I'm testing this on r70774 with v94.24 nvidia drivers installed on real hardware.

If i check the log ReactOS is missing user.exe

Code: Select all
06/26/16 07:20:50: DXSetup - No command line switch



06/26/16 07:21:27: Error: GetLangCodePage(): GetFileVersionInfoSize Failed!: Error = 2
06/26/16 07:21:27: Installation ended with value -9 = Internal or unsupported error

06/26/16 07:25:27: DXSetup: start installation

06/26/16 07:26:47: DXSetup: WM_APP_ENDINSTALL
06/26/16 07:26:47: DXSetup: ~CDXWSetup()


It does proceed if i add the file from windows xp but gets a BSOD during the copy process.

After this ReactOS does still boot but there are signs of filesystem corruption and if i try to run dxdiag i get a dialog box stating it's not a valid win32 application.

August 2009 runtime (directx_aug2009_redist.exe) does install. June 2010 file (directx_Jun2010_redist.exe) worked, too. The 2009 one also has been tested on real hardware (it failed then, but just because of low HDD space)

Win32k is no file copy error. It tries to init DX and fails in win32 subsystem. Logs would be really nice in that condition.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

(THREAD NECROMANCY WARNING! :) )

With r75126 I've added to compilation a stub user.exe that should be present in %SystemRoot%\system32, to mitigate the DirectX 9.0 installation check that always want user.exe to be present. As it can be seen from the commit log, this problem is indeed not a ReactOS problem, but is also known by some Windows users.

NOTE: This thread is now redundant with http://reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16498 .
