Yay!
now, hopefully I'll be able to run 3dmark08 (or whatever it will be called), as well as Crysis with DirectX 10, without having to use Vista.

I havent tried installing it yet. Definitely run a virus scan through it and determine if its safe.

but its a step forward for sure!

Antivir says it's clean. Whether it works is yet to be determined.

the .cab has just got the files for dirextX 10, but no installer though.
Might have to use a program like Replacer to install the files.
