"S1023" error when you install the DirectX SDK (June 2010)

Symptoms

If you have an existing Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable installed on your computer, you may receive an "S1023" error when you install the June 2010 DirectX SDK.  

Cause

The issue occurs because a newer version of the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable is present on the computer. The June 2010 DirectX SDK installs version 10.0.30319 of the Visual C++ Redistributable.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, you must uninstall all versions of the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable before installing the June 2010 DirectX SDK. You may have one or more of the following products installed:
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86 Redistributable
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable
You can use Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall the products. Or, you can run the following commands from an administrator command prompt: 
MsiExec.exe /passive /X{F0C3E5D1-1ADE-321E-8167-68EF0DE699A5}

MsiExec.exe /passive /X{1D8E6291-B0D5-35EC-8441-6616F567A0F7}


After uninstalling the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable products, you may install the June 2010 DirectX SDK.

After installing the June 2010 DirectX SDK, you may then reinstall the most current version of the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package.
