Sounds like a faulty installer program. Try pressing CTRL ALT DEL between the reinstalls and rebooting the system.

Did you, by chance, already have D-X9.0 installed on your machine? Whether or not you have it, CWMC'03's Installer will think that you continually need to install 8.1 untill you trick it into thinking otherwise. I just did this last night.

There is also a patch that you can get from the SUPPORT area of That might be the fix you need. If the patch doesn't work, then you'll probably have to get inside of the registry.

Thanks for the help guys...I had posted that problem in January. I searched for direct 9, got on their site, downloaded that newer version, and got MC03 installed. I'm still hopeing for someone to reply to the post I made last nite regarding static/distortion while recording
