so well uh..my problem is one of a kind a mess Last night i was trying to find a way to remove DX9 from windows 7 so i kept going to alot of sites...SO what i did is i just went to Registry and Deleted both DirectX folders with binaries and strings in both Microsoft and Wow64node/MS but then i discovered that i had just done a big mistake
So i couldn't install DX anymore..even with full redist but the DxDiag still says i have DirectX11 lol how? anyways i followed someone's guide to restore DX9 but using XP way and it worked but i discovered it has ruined my AMD Catalyst Driver 12.9 beta..i no longer can adjust Tessellation and some settings went away from the graphic card
i even tried reinstalling with Redist and web and they do install but they do not change registry and still i have problems in the driver so Please any help?! i do not want to reinstall whole windows again
Edit:Games are still working fine somehow but i didn't try DX11 games yet
Games that support DX10+ should allow to pick which DX version you want to run, or defaults to 10/11. No point in removing DX9 since the risks, OS/driver corruption and incompatibility with DX9-only software, is too great to be worth it.
And if you can still run DX9 games supposedly without DX9 files, your uninstall was incomplete and only accomplished in breaking your driver.
I would recommend using System Restore and undo your mess.
