just installed a saphire radeon hd 3650 512mb, with direct x 10.1 everything now works great except when i go to play one of my fav games (C&C 3) a popup says i need to install the latest version of direct x!, the requirement for that game is only version 9!!
is this common?? is there an emulator out there or something?? help please - i love that game!
There are new releases of DX9.0c almost every month (if not every month) which add new libraries and update old ones. What comes with XP is very old and will need an update for most new games to work. Vista's one I would think should be fine for DX9 in most games, but an update is never a bad thing.
New machine, old machine, doesn't matter. DirectX should be updated every now and then anyway, at least after each time you re-install the OS because you'll be stuck using an old version. If that doesn't fix your problem then something else is screwed. Start with the easy fixes first
ok, ive downloaded and installed directx 9. but the game still doesnt work. in dxdiag its still saying the version is 10, so do i need to uninstall version 10? how would i go about that and would i have to reinstall that for newer games??
