It runs, goes to where it says "installing components" and "Initializing" but just sits there.
After a while I switched the monitor back and I saw a black screen with vertical green lines on the left.
Weird stuff eh?
I tried the June and December 2006 DirectX versions and both do the same thing.
P3 Coppermine 800
GeForce 3 ti 200
Realtek based GBE Network card
160GB Hard drive
Windows 98SE with SP3 updates
The problem was setup wasn't finding it's files, rather than tell me it'd rather just sit there twiddling it's thumbs. 😜
The solution was to move the dx install folder to the root of the C drive with a folder name of less than 8 characters.
Both of those worked for me, not sure which one did it though.
The moral is not to try to run it from the desktop anyway.
