I'm trying to figure out a way I could deploy DirectX 9.0c using the software installation option of active directory.
Since DirectX 9.0c is not available in .msi format, I tried doing a package. I used a clean WinXP SP1 workstation and WinInstall LE 2003. The packaging went fine but when I try to install it, I get at least 50 of the following event in the event viewer:
Description: Product: DirectX 9.0c -- Info 1931. The Windows Installer service cannot update the system file C:\WINDOWS\System32\dpnhupnp.dll because the file is protected by Windows. You may need to update your operating system for this program to work correctly. Package version: 188.8.131.521, OS Protected version: 5.1.2600.1106
Obviously, the installation of DirectX 9.0c fails as it seems I am unable to replace/update system files. Is there any way to create a working .MSI package for DirectX 9.0c?
Thanks for your help.
