I just bought the game Rift and am trying to play. Everytime I go to download the Direct X it gives me this error, "A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted. Please verify the Cryptographic Services are enabled and the cabinet file certificate is valid."

Somebody please help. just want to start playing rift.
Thanks
Phil

To resolve this behavior, re-register the Softpub.dll, Wintrust.dll, Initpki.dll, Dssenh.dll, Rsaenh.dll, Gpkcsp.dll, Sccbase.dll, Slbcsp.dll, Mssip32.dll, and Cryptdlg.dll files. To do so, follow these steps:

1.Click Start, and then click Run.
2.In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3.At the command prompt, type regsvr32 softpub.dll, and then press ENTER.
4.Click OK when you receive the message that DllRegisterServer in Softpub.dll succeeded .
5.Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the following files: Wintrust.dll, Initpki.dll, Dssenh.dll, Rsaenh.dll, Gpkcsp.dll, Sccbase.dll, Slbcsp.dll, Mssip32.dll, and Cryptdlg.dll.
6.Type exit, and then press ENTER to quit Command Prompt.



i did this and on all but regsvr32 softpub.dll i get this message.

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create and association in the Default Programs control panel."

Rats. I just noticed that thread is from 2007 so it's for XP, not Win 7. Some of the dlls it mentioned don't exist in Win 7.

I found this, maybe it will help: Solved - DirectX Installation Error

The latest redistributable I can find is here: DirectX End-user Runtime update
