You might want to post this in the tech support forum.

Jeff doesn't read these boards. (not even the tech support section) So if you want him to know about something, you have to e-mail spidweb@spiderwebsoftware.com

However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

You can easily check if you got DirectX (I would be surprised if you did NOT have it.) by opening the program folder where most applications lay. The folder is simply named DirectX. Perhaps you are just being unpatient, waiting a minute may help (Assumed you have not started pressing all the buttons on your keyboard.).

EDIT: Some info about DirectX:
DirectX is a software creation kit that enables many functions. It is in fact so useful that almost all games and software use it today. Some functions DirectX enables:

-Autostart when you insert a CD.
-Compatible 3D support.
-Automatic joypad button assignment.
-And a boat load of other important and useful functions.

The equal of DirectX on macintosh is QuickTime.
