Default

just tell windows that the current version installed is a
lower version.

Regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SOFTWARE
Microsoft
DirectX
Version
For 9.0c I have a version number of 4.09.0000.0904
Change it to 4.08.0000.0904 and windows (and direct X installers) will believe you
have directX 8 installed.
