Whenever I try and run my fresh install of BoA, it crashes with the Following error.
Failed to initialize DirectX Audio. DirectX 8 may not be installed.
However, when I ran DXDiag, the soundcard passed all of the DirectSound tests.
The log file contains:

One thing I have noticed, is that the installer appears to install one DirectX 8 Dll into the Application directory DX3D881AB.dll, but my OS has directX 9.0a installed.
Any help would be appreciated.
