    I compared the directx folders for the games I have and saw a significant difference. The game that plays has 5 items 2 cab files and 3 non-cab files. The games that won't play all contain 157 files: 3 non-cab files and 154 cab files.

    Alright, I'm not sure how many items you're missing because my laptop shows 4,256 items.

    Please visit Windows Update and make sure to check for updates

    You may want to use the following tutorial for hiding update Windows 10 1607, I'm not sure if this update will do anything good to your system.

    I ran the update and was told that I was current. As for having fewer items in my System32 folder, could the fact that I only recently (clean) installed my Win10 have a bearing on that. It was about 2 wks ago.

    That shouldn't be the reason, unless the media somehow was partly corrupted, but then usually a problem happens while the installation is going which causes the setup to revert back to the previous installation.

    I've checked the dll's mentioned on my system, they all seem to be related to DirectX which you said failed installation.
    Was there any error code or something displayed for the reason why DirectX failed to install?

    The one posted is the final error stating DLL's from DirectX are missing (saying it in the correct way), but there is no description of the error of the DirectX install failure.

    As regards games on Steam: I go to my account games library, select a game to play, it starts the little (black) window shown in the center of the screen .. Performing first time .. etc Then it fails showing the message with the white background. Here is the screen shot:

    Does the "DXSETUP.exe Bad Image" convey any clues? I have not seen any other information made available; where could I look?
