direct x RRS feed

  • Question


    I tryed to download a trial of a game that i was interested in buying just to make sure it would work smoothly, after what seemed to be a successful installation the program prompted me to download direct X 9c because my current version is not compatible (10).

    1. Why is this?

    2. If i do what it says and download it, will my system be changed to running on lesser software?


    Thanks in advance to any answers.

  • well since u have direct x 10 u can have direct x 9 at the same time i beleive u have vista ultimate because when u have ultimate u can downgrade in order to play some of the other games so just when ur done installing 9 then just right click the game and run in administrator mode and you shall have your game working

    p.s. there may be and little box that may open on the right hand screen and windows has downgraded to basic which is perfectly fine; it will go back to ultimate once u have got out of the game.

    if you have any more questions u shall contact me at
