im working on a laptop for a client. its a samsung R780, with windows 7 Home Premium.

they want to install this program called AVS video editor. it wont install due to an error related to directX.
it happens during a basic install process. i double click the .exe install file i click next and boom, error. i try updating directX like it says and another error appears.

i'll post some screen shots of the error. a solutions to this would be great :)

Thanks after attempted AVS Editor install after attempted directX update/install

Have you tried running it in Compatibility Mode?  Right click on the install file and select Troubleshoot Compatibility and choose the default options.

Ah ok, try reinstall the redistrib :

That should repair your DirectX 9....are you running Win 7 Home Prem 64 bit?

Yep, it's directx 9.2 redistrib which is still used within Windows 7.  Extract it out and run DxSetup.exe, then reboot.
