Where is the downloaded Directx file in Win 10?
« on: October 30, 2022, 01:12 AM »
Hello folks, i ran into a new problem. Currently i am using Win 10 (x64-bit) edition.
I h' a game called Dead Rising 2 but when i was on Win 7 (x32-bit) whenever i Quit the game and restart after say 10-15 min i get error.
I think this most probably has to do with Directx file not being downloaded.
So i installed this game in Win 10 and there is bootstrap file to download the required Directx files.
Its in this path:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dead Rising 2 Complete Pack\_Redist\DirectX\dxwebsetup.exe
But i checked the TEMP folder and the C:\Users\pinso\AppData\Local\Temp folder. There doesn't seems to be any folder or file created.
So i am asking u, who are into techy stuffs and know what is where.
Where does this folder be downloaded so that i can make a copy of it and install in Win7 (32bit) machine. Becoz that machine is quite fast, so the performance of the game will be compromised. This game lags in Win 10.

Use a tool like 'Process Monitor' from SysInternals. Run that in the background and go through your procedure once again then stop 'Process Monitor'. You haven now gathered a lot of data of each process that started and stopped, registry adjustments and where which files were opened/stored/deleted.

This data can be filtered and then you should have the location of the file you seek.

VoidTools Everything - download it, run it, type in what you're looking for.

Or just download it:

If I understand correctly, you want to install DirectX on another computer. Is there a reason why you don't just copy the dxwebsetup.exe file to the other computer and install it using that?

My guess is that you want to have DirectX 9 without any internet connection needed during install.
