Installing DirectX on Windows Server 2012 Core Edition

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have Server 2012 Core installed with latest version of everything (all windows updates are completed).

    My problem is when it comes to installing DirectX.

    I'm getting the web downloader, and guess what, I get a message saying An Internat Error Occured, and to look into DirectX.log and DXError.log in C:\Windows\log.

    Well, that's what I get (DirectX.log)

    And DXError.log

        CDXWSetup::DownloadDXUpdate() failed.

    What the hell is that?

    I also ran utility command "sfc /scannow" command. It said there was no problem.

    I don't know what to do. I'm lost. Help me.

    Does it have something to do with the fact i'm in Core Edition?

    Thanks
