DIRECTX DETECTION & INSTALLATION


James Bond 007(TM) - Blood Stone requires that your computer have the latest version of DirectX 9.0c installed in order to run. This is included with James Bond 007(TM) - Blood Stone and will run automatically during installation, and is also available online at:
http://www.microsoft.com
At the end of James Bond 007(TM) - Blood Stone install setup, the installer will automatically install DirectX 9.0c and all required runtime updates on your computer. If you already have other Windows games on your computer, chances are you already have a version of DirectX installed. In this case, the Microsoft installer will detect it and will not overwrite any files. You will not need to restart your computer after installation in order to run James Bond 007(TM) - Blood Stone. If, however, you do not already have DirectX 9.0c installed the Microsoft installer will detect and overwrite any previous versions with DirectX 9.0c. At that point, you will need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

You can also manually install it later. To do so, use the following instructions (*):
1.Place your James Bond 007(TM) - Blood Stone disk in the DVD-ROM drive. The Launch screen should appear. (See the AutoPlay section above if it does not appear.)
2.Click on the "Extras" button.
3.Click on "DirectX" and follow the installation process. When DirectX installation finishes, you will need to restart your computer for the new drivers to work.
4.If you encounter the following error message, then you have tried to start the game without the correct version of DirectX installed on your computer: "DirectX 9.0c is not installed on this computer. Install it and try again." You will need to follow the directions above to install DirectX before starting the game.
UNINSTALLING

James Bond 007(TM) - Blood Stone can be uninstalled from your system from the Add/Remove programs section of the Windows Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel). Select James Bond 007(TM) - Blood Stone from the list of applications installed and select Uninstall, then follow the instructions on screen.

You may need to manually delete your save games after uninstalling. To do so, use the following instructions

Windows XP
