ATI Radeon 4850 Directx 9.0c error on XP32 ?!?!
#1
Hello

I have an Ati Radeon 4850 1gb GDDR3, Intel Quad Q9550 and 4gb RAM

I downloaded latest Catalyst drivers (9.5) and latest DirectX (9.0c, because I'm running XP 32 bit) and I'm trying to run latest PCSX2 (0.9.6),

but.. I can't get PCSX2 to run. Tried EVERY single combination of graphic plugin (GSdx 890 sse2 with Pixel Shader 2 or 3, GSdx 890 ssse3 with Pixel Shader 2 or 3, GSdx 890 sse4.1 with Pixel Shader 2 or 3) results in the error 'Please update DirectX' causing program crash.

Is there a way to get my GPU to work with PCSX2 without upgrading to ***** Vista with DX 10?

download and install this.

also Vista isnt ***** by any stretch of the imagination. Its superior to XP in almost all aspects imo, and Windows 7 is even better than that now (which can be used for free right now)

thanks a lot for the help!
now everything's ok

think.. when I bought this new PC two months ago, I purchased a copy of Vista 64...
installed it and then turned back to XP32 after a nanosecond... only 20% of my soft worked! (issues with various games, Alcohol120%, Winamp, Cubase (audio edit), external MOTU audio device even with correct drivers, etc..)
I think the only thing that worked without patch/tricks/downloads/upgrades was World of Warcraft.. bah!

I use all those programs you listed except for the audio device thingy you mentioned with absolutely zero issues on Vista64. I've pretty much had no issues with any programs except for very old games where I had to do some funky work-around to get them working, but that's it. There's all kinds of info about getting programs working on Vista if you're having trouble, so just use google. Vista64 is just far better than XP, and there is no reason to bottleneck your GPU by staying with an old OS that limits you to DX9.

I have to agree that in some aspects that XP was better then Vista. But in some ways, it was always vice versa. I'm very happy with Windows 7, and I think it's the best of both worlds (XP and Vista) all wrapped into one.

Sorry for the off-topic there.

Truth is not everyone likes Vista (I went from XP32 to win7 64 directly and still miss XP for a couple of things) and it's not better in every aspect, there's also the fact 64bit OS usually needs you to update your software in order to run right but this is another issue, gaming performance in DX9 games gets reduced (funny enough vista without a SP actually did better on this but vista SP1 was a must have for other reasons), it's got hicups on the audio system (unfortunatelly this one carries on to win7 but seems to do much better than vista one), and that's just to mention a few things.

If anything win7 does a lot better than vista better enough to make long time XP users consider moving to it, but vista? nah Tongue hell even microsoft admitted vista to not have worked as good as expected and the say that they finally releasing a OS that performs better than the last one (win 7 vs vista) after a long line of releases which I agree on Tongue

Also you say there's no need to bottleneck our GPUs with only DX9 but let's face it there's not that many good DX10 games to make you want to move and if it wasnt for gabest and GSdx10 I wouldnt have even tried vista when I did long ago xD
