when i run DXSetup.exe it starts up like its about to copy some files (but it doesn't), then it says its complete. running DXDiag.exe shows that Feb. 05 bits are the latest. went in and deleted any DX SDK bits from this machine too, just in case ... still no go. followed the instructions in the help for the /InstallManagedDX flag ... nope. tried /InstallManagedDirectX from some google searches ... no. tried running the .inf file in the MDX cab ... no. this is getting frustrating ... i'm about to install the SDK on my test device as a last ditch effort, because i just want to see my app run on a non dev machine. anyway, the install experience for MDX needs to improve
