Hi,

I have the latest version of FRAPS and when I try to run the program this error pops out:

FRAPS error There was a problem initializing DirectX 9

FRAPS error

There was a problem initializing DirectX 9.
Please ensure your video drivers are up to date and you have the latest version of Direct.X installed. You can download the latest DirectX runtime from the following URL:

I tried to reinstall DirectX 9 and FRAPS, but I still can't get it to work.
Any ideas how to resolve this problem?

You should also try reinstalling your graphics or video card driver. Update it if a newer version is available. You can find the driver by going to your device’s website, go to support and download the version for your Operating System.
 
If you still get the same problem, update DirectX to the latest version if you haven’t done that yet. Here is the download link for the new DirectX: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35.
 
If FRAPS still won’t work, use another application. One is Bandicam and it is similar to FRAPS. Here is the download link: https://www.bandicam.com/downloads/

Fraps is an application designed for Microsoft Windows that you can use to take screenshots of your current screen, record a real-time video of the game you are playing, and display fps statistics on the corner of your screen for benchmarking purposes. If you keep receiving that error when starting Fraps, try downloading the latest version. Download the latest Fraps 3.5.99 and install it.

See if this works. The latest version supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2003. The application works great on ATI Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics adapters. If this doesn’t work, try downloading Microsoft DirectX 9.0c End-User Runtime to update your existing Microsoft DirectX. If this doesn’t work either, try starting the installer using the “Run as” option.

Right-click the installer or setup file then select “Run as administrator.” See if this works. If the problem continues, update your operating system to the latest Service Pack. For Windows XP, download Windows XP Service Pack 3. This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows XP. For Windows Vista, download Windows Vista Service Pack 2.

This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows Vista. For Windows 7, download Windows 7 Service Pack 1. This is the latest and only Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows 7. For Windows 8, you should update to Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store. Click to restart your computer when you are prompted.

Try installing the program again after this then see if it works.
