can i run back to Direct X 9?
i am using Direct X 11 and some games (old) wont run with it and need Direct-X 9-8 to run ... i tried to install them but nothing changes ...any idea ?
Latest DX installer includes both versions so you already have the required libraries. Try to reinstall. If that doesn’t work then the issue is something else.
Both Vista and Win7 ship with both DirectX 9c and DirectX 10 (Vista) or 11 (Win7). There was enough differences between the versions that it broke backwards compatibility, so MS included 9c for the backwards compatibility.
If you are having issues, it may be because the game relies on some depreciated aspect of DirectX.
