    Hi all,

    I'm setting up my HTPC and have MPC-HC running which works great, but I get an error every time I fire up a video to play.

    I downloaded the redist and it's massive, with heaps of files. Surely this is not necessary to install the lot??
    I'm hoping someone can provide some information about how to only install / register the necessary DLL(s) without installing the entire directx package.

    Cheers,

    Pat.

    Is it running XP? If I recall correctly, EVR custom renderer is only for Vista/7.
    Regardless, try madVR renderer instead, it is a superior renderer.

    Running Win7. EVR is definitely my preference.
    I tried MadVR, but it struggled with some of the larger 1080p files.

    Probably just try pasting d3dx9_41.dll in your MPC-HC folder then since you've downloaded the whole redistributable.
    Otherwise, have you tried the web setup?

    I tried putting that file in the MPC folder (in program files), and also in Windows\System32. No luck with either.
    I also tried to register the dll using regsvr32, but had no luck there either

    :(

    Surely, many people have dealt with this before?

    Cheers,

    Pat.

    What Samo said -- use the web setup. It will download & install only the files needed, and register them into Windows correctly.
