You probably run or installed some program (game) that came with full DX.
Sorry it took so long to get back, but I still don't think you guys are clear on what I'm saying...I'm saying that running dxsetup.exe always forces an an install of DX, whether it has been installed previously or not. DXwebsetup.exe does not ever force an install, and if DX or a later version is already installed it will put up a message saying so and then exit...

See attachments...dxsetup.png shows DX being force installed by running dxsetup.exe; DXweb.png shows what happens when I try to force install using dxwebsetup.exe. Hope this clear it all up...

Q:Why would you want to force a DX 9.0c install?

A:When you aren't sure that DX9.0c is installed and you want to be positive it's installed

At least, this is the way it works from my location...not sure why it would work differently elsewhere, but from what you guys are saying it may very well do that.
