Vista, EMC10 and DX9



5 answers to this question

Just as a follow-up on that - I did a fresh install of Vista Ultimate and then installed DirectX 10 before I did anything else - there were quite a few DirectX 9 files went in along with SDK 'updates' dating back to April 2006 - and that was the installation from Microsoft :lol:


So - nothing to worry about with the EMC 10 installation - MS put some DX 9 components in already ;)

I don't think it does - actually I don't think Vista will allow it


Apart from that, we do tell people to make sure they update to the latest DirectX for their machine manually, along with checking for the latest video drivers from the card makers

Actually the DirectX 9 is not so much an older version as a different version - as I said, it probably won't install on a Vista machine. Even if it does, it should install in parallel with DX10 and won't overwrite it.


However, even tho Direct X 10 may have been installed with your Vista, it's always as well to check for newer releases from MS anyway - they tend to update it every couple of months


I've never actually heard (yet) of anyone having DirectX problems on any OS unless their copy is way out of date
