I have no idea how Toontalk or SimCopter actually arrange for a DirectX
upgrade, but it doesn't need to be *this* bad. You should be able to get
the code from Microsoft, or verify that the code came from Microsoft, so
you're only making yourself vulnerable to / trusting / relying on Microsoft;
not both Microsoft and SimCopter / Toontalk.
