is this a downloaded game? It would be helpful if I had the full error message.

Why is there a 'GET SETUP' error whilst installing DirectX?
Answer


This error is typically due to a conflict in the system files. You can, however, manually replace a file that should allow you to install DirectX.

1. Insert the game disk into the drive.
2. Open My Computer.
3. Right-click the game disk icon and choose Explore.
4. Open the DirectX folder.
5. Right-click the dsetup.dll file and choose Copy.
6. Close the window.
7. Re-open the My Computer window.
8. Open the Local Disk C: drive.
9. Open the WINDOWS folder.
10. Open the SYSTEM32 folder.
11. Right-click on any empty space in the folder and choose Paste.
12. Close all open windows.
13. Run the installation again.
