Can't reinstall 07 because i can't reinstall directx

Postby Cleveland wins on Tue Mar 23, 2010 8:58 am

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I can't reinstall directx which is required for nba live 07, the reason they say that it won't install is because it keeps saying that a cabinet file can't be trusted. And the the directx file that i'm trying to download is from microsoft website, is there anything elese that i can use instead of directx to run the game? And why is directx required to run video game pc cds that you buy? If anyone elese has installed directx, how did you do it?

In very simple terms, you need DirectX so that your video card and other multimedia devices will work properly with NBA Live 07 and other games. Normally, games will install DirectX automatically though if you have the same version or later already installed, the installation will skip this step. As you've discovered, you can also download it from the Microsoft website and install it manually.

In short, it's a required component when it comes to video cards and 3D games so yes, you need it and no, you can't use something else.

Clearly there is some corruption or security/permissions problem that's preventing you from installing DirectX properly, resulting in the failure notice and error message that you're receiving. I'm not familiar with the exact solution but you might want to run a Google search along the lines of can't install directx cabinet file can't be trusted and your operation system (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7) as I'm sure other people have run into the problem and there's a step by step solution out there somewhere.

You should have already had DirectX if you were playing any games. Did you have to reinstall Windows or something? What version of Windows are you trying to install Windows on? If you are using a newer version than XP, I suggest running the Live 07 installer in compatability mode for XP SP2.
