In my DirectX Diagnostic Tool, the DX Media Files lists two files that
are Beta Retail instead of Final Retail. How do I get the Final version? I
have downloaded all the DirectX files I can find and these two will not
change. The files are: mcigtz.drv and quartz.vxd. I am running DirectX 7.
At the time you upgraded to DirectX 7 those files might
been in use, consequently did not get upgraded. These two files are
located in Windows System directory. You can rename them and
reinstall DirectX 7 and they will get updated. So go to the
Windows\System directory and rename mciqtz.drv to mciqtz.old and
quartz.vxd to quartz.old and reinstall DirectX 7. If these files are
in use when you try to rename them you will need to boot your computer to
a command prompt and rename them through DOS.
