DirectX 7 Installation Problem

Hey everybody,

I've been trying to install DX7, but the installer is failing with a peculiar error. I opened c:\windows\directx.log to see what was going on with the installer, and it said the following:

10/16/99 19:05:18: Installation Started with language eng
10/16/99 19:05:18: DirectXSetupIsJapanese == 0
10/16/99 19:05:18: DirectXSetupIsJapanNec == 0
10/16/99 19:05:18: ERROR:  Unknown OS
10/16/99 19:05:18: SetupForDirectX:  Restoring Backups
10/16/99 19:05:19: Installation ended with value -1 = Unsupported window version
10/16/99 19:31:31: DXSetup - CommandLine:  /packageinstall

And it pops up with a message saying that I'm not running a supported version of Windows!

However, I am running Windows 95 OSR2 with the USB supplement installed.
DirectX 6.1 is already installed on the machine and runs without problems.

There is something with the USB supplement that causes the problem. Uninstall the USB supplement, then install DirectX 7. This also works for the Windows 95 Y2K update. After you've installed DX7, you can then reinstall USB.
