Hello,
I just installed MPC-Cinema on Windows XP machine. After installed it asked for Direct X runtime June 2010.
Here is what it said " Direct X runtime June 2010 is required [b:agfebei8]regardless Direct X you have[/b:agfebei8]"
I have the latest video card driver. What I don't understand is
Why MPC-Cinema asked for Direct X runtime June 2010?
What does Direct X runtime do in general? Is it related to video card driver? Or Direct X and video card driver are 2 diff things?

Thank you.

From Microsoft:
Microsoft DirectX is a group of technologies designed to make Windows-based computers an ideal platform for running and displaying applications rich in multimedia elements such as full-color graphics, video, 3D animation, and rich audio. DirectX includes security and performance updates, along with many new features across all technologies, which can be accessed by applications using the DirectX APIs.

AND:
The DirectX runtime cannot be uninstalled. We recommend Windows Me and Windows XP users create a "System Restore" point before installing.
