You beat me to it. - I agree ...

It could be one single core unit of the DX9 that is corrupted, or more likely out of date.

Don't be fooled into thinking ...

That because you've GOT DirectX 9.0c that it's up-to-date.

DirectX 9.0c arrived around July/August 2004 (it was needed to play the original FarCry) but it continues to update with each game that I've installed since, right up to and including FarCry2, X3-Terran Conflict & GTA4.

So, Nero 8 is perhaps telling you that YOUR installed build of DirectX 9.0c is older than it should be.

DXDIAG -

by OldER Mycroft In reply to dxdiag

My current version is sitting at:

V9.0c (9.12.0589.0000) @ 28/12/2008

I'd say that's why Nero 8 is complaining to you.
