I am attempting to run Photoshop Elements 9 Organizer on a Windows 8.1 OS and have entered the "DirectX is installed but cannot be initialized" HADES! Per the suggestions of many, many other users apparently residing in this HADES with me I have a) clicked "off" and reclicked "on" the "Turn Windows Feature On & Off / Legacy Systems / Direct Play" option and b) verified that "Windows / System 32 / quartz.dll" seems to be a legitimate file at 1.49MB and c) rebooted my computer so many times my boots are getting worn out and d) uninstalled and reinstalled Photoshop Elements twice. Does anyone here have any other suggestion or fixes for this apparently common and widespread Adobe problem that renders Photoshop Elements about 50% unusable? Thanks.
