Default DirectX 9.0

I am on ebay, ordering a TV tuner, and the tuner requires you computer sytem to have DirectX 9, but i only have 8....when i try to download 9 from windows, during the instalation it says something about it not passing the windows logo testing so it aborts the installation in the middle of the progrss. This also prevented me from playing some games <like bionicles, battlefield vietnam, etc.>.

This is begining to be a major problem because more and more tings require DirectX 9. Has anyone else come across this problem, or can anyone assist me in fixing it?

i mind a while ago i tryed installing windows updates and it came up that crap it has not passed windows testing blah blah... and it wouldnt install. gave up in the end.
is your video card quite new/good? i dont know well anything about direct x but i think it might depend on your hardware.
if not then its just another thing to blame microsoft for

I just got the same message yesterday when trying to install the nvidia driver for my new video card. After the message came up i aborted, but it seemed to finish installing anyway. Then i just downloaded the newest driver from the nvidia site and it installed perfectly fine.

By resending, I mean that you can try to download the direct x again from other site or from microsoft again, sometimes data gets corrupted...
