Installing Cakewalk Sonar V2.2

Postby Happenedtoyou » Thu Feb 26, 2004 1:33 pm

I got (from a friend) Sonar v2.2. It's an installation file of Sonar 2.....which can then be upgraded to 2.1.and that upgraded to 2.2. I had the program before, but something happened to my PC, and lost it. Now, i click the setup file, and the first window says that "Sonar cannot detect DirectX 8.1, would you like to install" I click yes, it does install, it says it was sucessfull, and thats it. Then It dissapears. I then click on it again to continue install, but I o back to saying "It cannot detect DirectX 8.1". What is going on? I have a much higher version of direct X and i know it should accept this. I uninstalled DirectX 9.0, and installed DirectX 8.1.... but it still does the same. How can i BY Pass this installation and continue installing Cakewalk?

See this thread, it may have a solution

By the way you cant just "uninstall DirectX" and install a new one over the top. You have to reinstall the operating system.

From the MS windows page

The DirectX 9.0b runtime cannot be uninstalled. We recommend Windows Me and Windows XP users create a "System Restore" point before installing. For information on creating a restore point, please refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles:
