WIN 10 install error - missingDirectX component

During install of ver 5.8 while v 5.666 is still loaded produces error after approx 3/4 loaded. Error states that DirectX component is missing. I have WIN10 Pro 64-bit. When running dxdia (Microsoft DirectX troubleshooting program), everything looks good. It would be nice if It would be nice if I could attach .pdf pix of error and DirectX info

I am running DirectX 12.
Error refers me to https://support.microsoft.com/kb/179113

You need to download and install DirectX 9.0

no support for m4a/aac inW10

I had exactly the same problem when I upgraded Winamp to the latest version. I upgraded because it doesn't play my .m4a files using the aac codec. I read all the threads related to this issue but to no avail.

I don't see how I can downgrade to version 9 of DirectX without causing new problems in Windows 10.

After 20 years of using Winamp, I regret the app is no longer actively supported.

you dont downgrade to direct x 9.0, you install the redistributables which include extensions that is missing in x10+

i believe if someone installs any necessary directx redistributables they don't have, and then installs 5.666, and then installs 5.8 over top, they will have no problems with AAC m4a's or other file/codec types.
