The June 2010 package is also v9.29.1974, so only the web installer got updated of some sort?

Maybe they have not updated the website yet or the redistributable file name.

more details here

some extract:

Updated files in the new redist:

DSETUP.dll

dsetup32.dll

dxdllreg_x86.cab

DXSETUP.exe

dxupdate.cabSo in other words, only the setup files!

The rest of them are the same as the old June 2010 redist.

I remember that "fake" update (Nov 2010 I think); it came with the Bing toolbar, couldn't forget that :huh:

This update is a new one. I don't say though that it adds anything new :lol:

Guess what. I tired it, said no updating is needed, but asked about the Bing toolbar. :sneaky: :rolleyes:

There wasn't any Bing when I tried it the last time...

Thanks for the share!

It downloaded April 2006 for me, but idk, maybe the April 2011 too, the install was too quick, though in the download progress in the webinstaller I only saw it downloading April 2006... (3.7 mb)

I think it would be logical to integrate these functions in Windows Update. Аnd do not need any installers
