It's not a huge issue, but it's getting quite annoying. Every time I want to play APB, the launcher insists that it needs to install DirectX. It doesn't take a a whole lot of time, but having to wait 30 seconds extra is getting rather annoying.

Any fixes?

I've had the same issue since upgrading some computer parts. I have to wait about 2 and a half minutes for mine -.-
Very irritating!

This is my workaround;

- Close the game/launcher.

Go to APB folder (APB Reloaded\TPI);

Open TPI.xml with notepad and remove this line;

<InstallerInfo>
<Name>DirectX</Name>
<DllRelativePath>DirectX\DirectXInstaller.DLL</DllRelativePath>
<SetupFileRelativePath>DirectX\DirectX_June2010program</SetupFileRelativePath>
</InstallerInfo>

Save the file and delete the DirectX folder.

First off: Necro.

Secondly: You can NOT remove PunkBuster, as the servers still use it.

What are you, speshul? Who gives a f if it's a "necro" if the issue still exists today?

 

Mobster's fix worked for me, thank god old threads still exist.
