The following is from the readme.txt included in the file:

------------------------------------------------------
- SetDX 6 Patch V0.5 Beta by **Hans Wilson/AbSoLuTe**-
------------------------------------------------------

You know this problem:
"This game need a newer version of Directx"

The solution:
SetDX 6

What does SetDX 6?
----------------
It patch the version variables from the NT 4.0 DX .dll to 6.1.

Lets fool some games a little
-----------------------------
Create a temporary directory and extract setdx6 there.

You need the follow files from the system32 directory:
d3dhalf.dll
d3drg16f.dll
d3drg24f.dll
d3drg32f.dll
d3drg8f.dll
d3drgbf.dll
d3dxof.dll
d3drm.dll
d3drm16f.dll
d3drm24f.dll
d3drm32f.dll
d3drm8f.dll
d3dxof.dll
ddhelp.exe
ddraw.dll
dinput.dll
dsound.dll

copy the files also to this temporary directory.

Make sure that the files are not write protect.
If you get a DDRAW.DLL file in use or DDRAW.EXE file in use,
go to task manager and kill the application DDRAW.EXE before.

Run setdx6.exe

Copy the .dlls back to system32
Copy the automatical generated sound.vxd (for Lucasarts games)
also to system32

Add the regkey (regedit.exe): HKLM\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\
Value: Version, Regtype: REG_SZ, String: 4.6.1.0

Restart.

Tips
----
1) Backup the .dll before you run SetDX 6
Keep in mind this is a early beta.
2) SP4 content dplay 6.1
Download SP4, if you don´t have it
3) NT 4.0 compatible games
