Every time I start up Deus Ex from the steam menu it always has to install DirectX for some reason even if I exit out of the game and immediately play it again it just says its installing DirectX and it takes a long time. Does anyone know why this i happening?

Try running steam as admin (right click and select run as admin)

No that doesn't seem to work, it doesn't ask me to install DirectX when I do this but it still does install it.

So it doesnt ask, it just does? how bizarre

Same happens for me as well.

When it comes to the VCDist and DirectX installs on Steam games it never asks, it just runs it. Majority of the time it just does it on first running of the game. But a rare few times it does it repeatedly. This is one of those times. :/
