This will update any missing files/versions up to 9.0c and is useful if older games won't load.
It also won't affect DirectX 11 it just adds missing files. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?Fami...
Btw Win7 ships with DirectX 11 and i have a DX 11 card that wouldn't play an older game until i ran the above file.
im actually having a problem too. for some reason i would ahve to log on then log off when my direct3 says not available,. upon to logging back on, it goes back to enabled on dxdiag. then randomly it will just suddenly change to not available and i would have to log off then log on again. so frustrating, anyone any ideas?
Download DirectX latest version from microsoft. If any DLL file is missing then download that file and unzip the DLL file you download from DLL site and extract it to your system directory. By default, this file is located here:
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7: C:\Windows\System32
