Re: FF/RW Directx 9.0c Bug
I have to hand it to you Stephane... I've read A LOT of posts concerning this issue and the problem really has been driving me up the wall. I absolutely hate the idea of not running the latest update available. Not being able to use directx 9.0c has been such a pain. Especially considering the process to revert back to 9.0b and the fact that you loose wmvhd playback and whatever other advances 9.0c has to offer.
So I reinstalled my XP SP2 with the repair otion to bring the system back to 9.0c, rebooted in safe mode and plopped the quartz.dll file from 9.0b into c:\windows\system32, overwritting the one that was there. Rebooted once more and WOW, totally crips ff/rw and 9.0c too boot!!!
Thank you so much for your research. I really couldn't be bother contacting microsoft for the newer dll.
If anyone wants to try this really simple version of a fix for this just do as I said with the file atttached.
