  • Hi,

     

    DirectX 11 is preinstalled on Windows 7 and I am afraid it cannot be removed separately.

     

    I would like to know what exact error is received when running this game.

     

    DirectX issue can be caused by outdated drivers. I suggest updating Video card driver to the latest version first.

     

    If the issue persists, try DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer which provides updates to 9.0c and previous versions of DirectX. Here is the link:

     

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en

     

    If the issue persists, this game may be not compatible with Windows 7, I suggest contacting its distributor to confirm it.

     

    Hope it helps.

    Hi Vivian,
    thanks for your reply..
    The game is ModernWarfare 2 and here you can see the error (as you can see,all the text of the game are incomprehensible).

    http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/7203/codmw2z.jpg

    I also tried on XP with directx9.0c and it works fine!
    I have also the last video drivers and i don't think about the game is not compatible with win 7...
    Waitin for your reply..
    Thank you

    Hi Vivian,

    I'm having all sorts of problems trying to get Flight Simulator X running under W7 x64 Pro.  Like many others, I get the 'Fatal Error' and FSX restarts.  I've performed numerous reinstalls & formats.  All drivers are the latest W7 compliant.  There are no temperature or hardware issues.  Annoyingly, the RC ran flawlessly from Jan - Oct.

    The reason for hijacking this thread is, I tried to run the above tool (as Admin) and get an error window -

    DXError.log contains:

    --------------------
    [11/28/09 19:56:44] module: DXWSetup(Sep  4 2009), file: dxwsetup.cpp, line: 219, function: CDXWSetup::InitInstallEngine

        Sections are not initialized.

    --------------------
    [11/28/09 19:56:44] module: DXWSetup(Sep  4 2009), file: psheets.cpp, line: 472, function: PreinstDlgProc

        CDXWSetup::InitInstallEngine() failed.

    -----------------------

    Any help appreciated.

  • DirectX 11 cannot be unistalled from Windows 7.  It is part of Windows 7.  I suspect you have some other problem with your system.  I am running Windows 7 64-bit and Google Earth runs without any problem.

    Tuesday, April 27, 2010 7:34 PM
  • This is problematic, as I have TWO games that the developers are blaming directx11 for the problems.  Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Just Cause 2.  (Ok, in actuality, I cant even get a RESPONSE back from the JC2 people, but I worked for a week with EA until they gave up)  My installs have been blamed, my computer has been blamed, the OS has been blamed, the 64-bit portion of the OS has been blamed, the computer manufacturer has been blamed, Nvidia has been blamed, the download was blamed, until I told them it was a disc and the flawless disk was blamed, and no one is willing to take responsibility to fix this issue.

    My older games run just fine.  It's the two new titles that are supposed to be Dx10 and 11 compatible that don't.  They don't even give an error message, just close as if someone hit alt-f4.

  • im having the same " this application requires directx 8.1 or better"

  • I'm encountering a similar issue in World of Warcraft.  Since patch 4.0, the game crashes almost immediately upon login.  However, if I run the game in opengl mode, it runs flawlessly for hours on end.

  • when i go to the direct x diagnostic tool, and click on display, the directdraw accleration , direct3d acceleration and the agp texture acceleration is written as not avaliable, is there anyway to allow them to be enabled???

    These are a report of what DX Diag has found in your system.  If your video card meets the specs, then you need to check you video driver.  You don't turn them on/off.  They are enabled if your hardware meets the swpecs and you have the correct video driver installed.  If not they are disabled.

  • Definate problem with DirectX.  Mine just stopped working recently.  DXDIAG says Direct3D is unavailable, never had this before.  Drivers all up to date.  If someone knows of a fix, please let us know.

    Then you contact the publisher of the game and report you are having problems with it on Windows 7!

    Microsoft is not going to modify DirectX11.

    The publishers of the games have to write the code for their games so that thier games are compatible with Windows 7 and DirectX11!

  • the issue appear to be that in anything less than Windows 7, DirectX is labeld as dp****X.dll and anything older than Windows 7 is labeled as DP****.Dll ~ Simply put, in DirectX 11 they seem to have added a letter to all their files - and anything that is looking for the old file name is screwed.

     

    I am currently trying to get Doom 98 TCP Connection - Direct. to work and the DPWSock.Dll is named DPWSockX.dll in windows 7 - but it runs fine on XP where it is actually called DPWSock.dll.

    this is a fundamental compatibility issue that is directly cause by DirectX.

  • Rick Dee you are a meatball.  The publishers are not the one to blame, the problem is most graphic cards do not support direct x 11. If you have a gforce graphics card go to http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/dx11/supported-gpus this will let you know what cards support direct x 11.  The only other option is to use an older version of windows.

    Apparently you're not the brightest star in the sky!

    If you would have read the OP before making such an accusation, you would have realized the OP apparently has a current video card that does support directX11, but it is the game that seems to be causing the problem.

  • Hello,  I am having the same problem trying to run War Thunder. It tells me that my computer doesn't support Direct x 11 & direct X 9 will be used. I click Ok and get a further error message from Gaijin -..\..\prog\engine2\drvDX9\detect.cpp.185. I do not know what this means, I cannot find ant ref. to it anywhere and also cannot find where directX is installed. The game was running last night at 10:30pm and this morning at 10:30 I got these messages, I have re started com. a few times ,but to no avail.

    i will have a look at your link above and see if it helps and will let you know if Ok.

    Regards, BillP
