    Open a map in entity and goto the sbsp tag and click the only thing in there, then goto the blue + sign and click view bsp.

    Would you happen to be on a 64 bit system? If not, post a picture of this error.

    I've never seen that error before... Are you on a 64 bit system?

    That's probably it. 64 bit systems don't really support all modding programs. Try different versions of Entity and see if one will let you open it.

    Oh, I know what that means. Your DirectX is out of date. Simply download and install this : [Click here to view the link]

    You should be good to go.

    Actually... You and I are having the same problem. I got the same error while trying to install the new DirectX update. I thought it was just my connection... Ok, just wait a while until Microsoft releases a fix or something. Or try searching for the August 2008 DirectX runtime.

    That's really odd. You have all of the DirectX dlls and all and you claim to have downloaded the latest DirectX runtime... Well, I do know someone who has 64bit Vista and he may be able to help. Talk to electronicsteen over AIM.
