To find out what version of directx you have installed, go to your Start menu at the bottom left of the desktop, select Run, then type in dxdiag. Answer yes to the prompt, then you will be presented with your directx info.

DirectX 10 is not available for Windows XP, so 9 will have to do.

There are several problems that could be causing your game to crash. Incompatible video card, not enough ram, or a bad installation. Make sure your PC meets all the minimum requirements for the game, then try to uninstall and reinstall the game. If this is still an issue afterwards, either post back here for some more suggestions, or email the game publisher's support contact for assistance.

Hope this helps!!

Where can I get a free download for windows xp 3 ksuser.dll?


The ksuser.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, ksuser.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.


Resolution
Important Note: Do not download the ksuser.dll DLL file individually from any "DLL download site." There are a number of excellent reasons that downloading DLLs from these sites are never a good idea.

Note: If you've already downloaded ksuser.dll from one of those DLL download sites, remove it from wherever you put it and continue with these steps.

1. Restart your computer if you haven't yet.

The ksuser.dll error might be a fluke and a simple restart could clear it up completely.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the ksuser.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX10 and DirectX9 files but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the ksuser.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

4. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with ksuser.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

5. Restore the ksuser.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your ksuser.dll error, try extracting the ksuser.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable package.

6. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

Applies ToThe d3d9.dll error message could apply to any program that utilizes Microsoft DirectX, most commonly video games. Any of Microsoft's operating systems since Windows 98 may be effected by d3d9.dll and other DirectX issues. This includes Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.

Update your DirectX to the latest(DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) @ Microsoft Site.

Update your Graphic Card drivers to the latest @ nVidia Site.

If your game does not run after these updates, you should get a better graphic card.

Need for speed wont install


dear sir
you can install directx 9c from www.downlod.com
after that you can run NFS from you system.
need no worry.
i think your system is not suitable for windows 64 bit. its not at all a porblem.
when ever you installed winxp 64 bit in your system automatilically it will install 32 bit graphics memory card.
dont worry about that.
first of all please install driectx from www. download.com ( its free).

Can not update DirectX


One thing you might want to try is seeing if there is an update to the graphics card driver. Check with Nvidia for an updated one. Sometimes that will allow the DirectX to load up and sometime the current DirectX will be loaded up in the driver update.
