    Not installing directx runtimes

    Been trying to install directx runtimes since i'm missing game sounds.
    First I got message that A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted. Please verify the Cryptographic Services are enabled and the cabinet file is valid.

    Followed instructions to go through with
    sfc /scannow
    Found corruption
    downloaded ISO, mounted and did the dism health thingy...
    Errors fixed. Yay
    sfc/scannow shows no corruption anymore
    EDIT: nvm shows corruption now again. spent 2 evenings on this already

    Now I go and try installing directx runtimes again-> same error about cabinet file error.

    what do I do now?

    Which DirectX are you trying to install ? W10 already has Dx12 which should be compatible with previous versions. Sound chip driver should have all necessary APIs for Dx12.

    Which games are you giving trouble? For games using DirectSound, you need something like Creative Alchemy.

Hi I read it has it. But I've run Dxdiag and it says Directx 11, is DX12 still not implemented in the TP? or is just a dxdiag bug? Thank you
