what do you mean it doesn't work?

MW2 is a Dx9 game, and shouldn't need dx10 to run. the game should include the necessary Dx runtime.

what happens when you try to play? and where did you get the Dx10 runtime from? and what happens when you try to install that?

AFAIK DirectX 11 is fully backwards compatible with DirectX 10 and 9. The GTX 295 supports DirectX 10, but MW2 is only a DirectX 9 games as welshmousepk said. What problems are you encountering?

its like an error that goes:D irectX suffered fom an unrecoverable error or somethong like that,it just happens spontaniously,
for example:im just playing mw2 and after minute or 2,a blanck screen appears and the error sound and the i have to exit the game by pressing ALT+f4 and thats that

ah, thats a common issue, and one the used to ruin the game for me. are you patched up to the latest version of the game?

its stopped happening to me some time ago, so the issue should have been resolved.

do you have all the updates for the game? all the patches?

also do you have the most recent driver for your graphics card.

Good grief, this is like asking "How do I install Windows Vista into Windows 7"
