Hi all,

 

I am trying to install Microsoft Direct X on a new laptop so I can play poker.

However, I keep getting this message:-

 

A cabinet file necessary for instalation cannot be trusted. Please verify the cryptographic services are enabled and the cabinet file certificate is valid.

 

 

I have the software installed on another laptop with no problems at all.

Could someone please tell me what I need to do to install the software.

I do trust it.

 

 

Thanks Guys

Your problem is installing DirextX or the poker?

 

DirectX you can download and install from microsoft http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displayLang=en

If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

 

Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.

That's where I am trying to install it from. But I still get that message a short way through the installation process. It is a brand new laptop that has Windows 7 professional as it's OS. I don't know if that makes any difference.

 

The poker software is Betfair which I have on two other computers with no problems (although the OS is only Vista on them). If you have the direct x installed, you are able to adjust the size of the poker software whilst playing. I can just play in normal mode but my laptop has to change the resolution or something, and it's a pain in the ar*e when you cannot adjust the size of the table.

Windows 7 has directx 11 built in which is the latest version.

The laptop is brand new out of the box today. Do you think it is faulty?

I have just tried to install Windows Updates and they all failed as well. Can it be something to do with my security settings or something? I have installed some programs today with no problem.

What is it with you and Microsoft updates? :lol:

 

OK it's a software issue by the sounds of things. Try http://www.update.microsoft.com and see what updates it installs from there. What antivirus are you using?

LOL, I know what you mean.

 

I have already tried updates like that. Same result. It seems to install the optional updates, but not the important ones (mainly security updates for Windows 7).

 

I use both MSE and Avast at the same time as they don't seem to interfere with eachother. But maybe that is the problem. I will disable Avast and retry.

Wel, I disabled Avast and tried to install Windows Updates. All 11 failed due to an unknown error. The codes are:-

 

80071A91

 

and

 

80070643

 

 

Neither are listed in the troubleshooting.

 

 

I can't understand how Windows 7 has direct x already installed if Betfair is telling me I need to install it. I got this laptop brand new to avoid all of the problems I had with my previous one, and this one is just the same. lol

No help I'm afraid PF, but thanks.

I only want a ruddy game of poker LOL.

I decided to do an administrative command prompt and typed in:-

fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\ (then clicked enter)

 

to reset the file system resource manager, and then I restarted the laptop

and tried Windows Updates again. I also done 1 at a time and i had

 

 

SUCCESS!!!!!

 

 

Just got to sort out the Directx problem now. I have a feeling that the poker site requires an older version of Directx, but I don't want to uninstall the latest one that come with Windows 7 in the first place.

 

 

At least my Windows is up to date.:)

Yet more success:p

 

Left Directx 11 in my system and found a download for Directx 10 to see if that helped. And it did.

 

Can now play poker the way I like it, although it is a bit late to play now.

 

Thanks Guys. No doubt I will have yet another problem tomorrow, so stay tuned for the next episode of.........
