I have recently bought SWBF2 to play on my Windows 7 PC.

I have Directx11 already on the computer.

Installation went fine, but then right at the end when I click to play the game on the first menu screen it says:

"Star Wars Battlefront II needs to update your DirectX installation before you proceed!"

So I follow the links and update DirectX, everything is fine (since I have Directx11 above the Directx9.0) but then the message above still comes up every time and I can't get rid of it.

Does anyone have a solution to this one?

Thanks. :confused:

Have you tried using DirectX 9.0c?

I'm finally getting back to trying BF2 again after years and I've got same exact problem. Game installs but won't start, claiming it doesn't have correct DirectX. I have 11 and have tried installing 9c but no luck.
