I just bought a new game called Caterpillar Construction Tycoon. When I installed it, I skipped the DX9 installation becasuse I already have DX9c. Well, after I installed it, the game said that there was a file missing. The file's name was dx something, so I knew it had to be DX related. I un/reinstalled the game, this time with DX9c. The game runs fine for a few minutes, then all kinds of weird things start happening. If you know what artifacts are, then you'll know what I'm seeing. Almost immediately after the artifacts show up, the screen goes black and crashes. I just bought the game, too. It really does frustrate a person when a game is fresh of the shelf and crashes the moment its played...

Any help is appreciated.

I think what happened was that the DX9c on the CD differs from mine... its an older version. Because the sounds that play for MSN Messenger stopped playing. I'll try to see if that really is the problem, if not then... I don't know.

I downloaded the newest DX9c version and everything is back to normal. Anybody else who encounters this problem, just get DX9 from Microsoft's page and it'll stop the problem.
