Problem with DirectX after clean Windows 10 and Oculus install

Did anyone encounter problems with content like "Henry" after a fresh Windows10 and Oculus Home 1.3 install? After some digging I found out some DirectX dependencies were missing on my totally fresh installed system. I tried to run Henry from Oculus Home but after the "VR Warning" screen it just jumped back to Oculus Home living room, with no additional info or error messages whatsoever. Running "Henry" from the Oculus installation directory in "Program Files (x86)" popped up the system error message "xapofx1_5.dll is missing". This is a DirectX related file. Downloading and running the Microsoft DirectX webinstaller from fixed it. Why isn't there a DirectX check included before starting Oculus Home?

edit:changed wrong DirectX link.

    That's strange. DirectX should be installed as part of the setup.
