Windoz10 and getting Direct X 9 installed???

Recommended Posts

Where do you download DirectX 9.0

  • Create an empty folder, for example c:\downloads\DirectX9
  • Create another folder files in the DirectX9 folder, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9\files
  • Go to the Microsoft download center for DirectX End-User Runtimes (2010) and click the download button
  • Uncheck all recommended software/features and see if the download summary on the right only says 1. DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010)
  • Click on the No thanks and continue button on the right
  • Choose to Save the downloaded file (directx_Jun2010_redist.exe), save it in your folder, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9

How do you extract the DirectX 9 files?

  • Open the downloaded directx_Jun2010_redist.exe file by double clicking it, or open it from the downloads list in your browser
  • Choose to run the application if Windows asks
  • Click on Yes to accept the agreement
  • Click on the Browse... button and choose the files folder you've created, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9\files and click on the Ok button
  • The DirectX files will be extracted to the chosen folder

How do you install DirectX 9?

  • Navigate to the files folder, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9\files
  • Find and double click the DXSETUP.exe file
  • Allow the app to make changes to your computer if Windows asks
  • Accept the agreement and click Next
  • To start the installation click Next
  • Click Finish to finish the installation

Direct X 9 will not overwrite any Direct X !! or Direct X 12 files. It is safe. Old games that check for it will then find it present.
