DirectX Redist

Recommended Posts

So, apparently Microsoft in their infinite wisdom decided to pull the DirectX redistributables from their site, it's a 404 now.  Not only that, more often than not people either downloaded or received bundled with a game a copy of the web installer, which is also now dead.  Occasionally needed even with Windows 10, depending on the game.  Why did they nuke it?   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Anyways, I have a copy of the last version of the full standalone installer, archived it up and tossed onto Mega if anyone needs it.  You can find a few other locations (Guru 3D, etc) if you want to chase it down but note that most downloads are the now dead web installer, will start but error out.

It's possible there were security issues.
