Download DirectX 9 Free for Windows 7/ 8/ 8.1/ 10/ XP
Microsoft DirectX 9 is the latest version of DirectX which provides superior support for DirectX compatible games and other multimedia applications. DirectX 9c contains lots of APIs, such as DirectDraw for drawing 2D Graphics and Direct3D (D3D) for drawing 3D graphics and other sounds, network and input APIs.
Why is it Necessary?
DirectX 9 gives the required support to use application with complex movement images and sounds. With the development during the previous years, it is must to have it since most of the games required it. Each of the components of this application contains a certain number of interfaces or shells. In this case, the user can find specially provided functions, using which, the user acquires access to all the capabilities of a particular object.
In the previous version of Windows operating system it works as a separate application, but not in Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Since it´s integrated into the system which cannot be removed or uninstalled. You can update the DirectX which released by Microsoft from time to time and take all the advantages by installing the latest version, you will be able to play all the latest games.
In general, DirectX is a special set of multimedia drivers, which, as a rule, bypassing the standard operating system allow directly access to the total equipment, using all the features and functions. In addition, some services use this kernel solely for their own needs for Windows 7/ 8/ 8.1/ 10/ XP Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 3.
In general, this tool includes several components at once. Each of these components is capable of providing functionality in one particular direction. In this case it is necessary to say that the components respond separately for sound, video, devices and so on. Each of these components perfectly copes with its function, so that, ultimately, you get a quality picture.
DX works with the latest Windows 10., 8.1 and 8, which is quite different than in 9 versions. Direct X 12 is already included by default with Windows 10 operating system. Direct X 12 latest version can be downloaded through Windows Update. However its clear that so many users got errors when they trying to install 9c on Windows 10.
Why is it worth installing dx 9?
In this version of the utility there is a strictly marked division of application programming and the area of system programming. In this case, we are talking about the development of drivers, with which application programmers are not found at all. In this case, a strict standard is defined that guarantees the stability of the work. This tool will surely turn the Microsoft Windows 32 bit or 64 bit operating system (Windows 7/ 8/ 8.1/ 10/ XP) into a gaming platform.
If we talk about alternatives, then they are not. In this case, certain separate components were developed, but only OpenGL can today be called an independent and worthy replacement for this tool. Well, in this case, will not compare and argue that of these two applied components is better, we have a slightly different goal. In this case, it’s up to you to decide what you will download and install. We strongly recommend that you should download and install DX.
As the developers themselves confirm, the output of this 9c version of the software is primarily connected with the technology of DirectX Graphics. Anyway, a similar situation was observed with the 8 version of the software. Despite all this, the program, which has a digit nine in its title, is a fairly good addition to the general list of software on your personal computer.
No separate file or version of DirectX 12 is available to download. But DirectX 11 is supported in Windows 8, 8.1 and 7. Update OS from XP to 7 to take advantage of DirectX 10, 11, and 12. The maximum emphasis is placed on the graphic component, as one of the progressively developing segments. In order to download the DX 9c version of the software, use the downloadable link given below.
Note: Kindly create a System Restore Point before installation, as the Direct X cannot be removed/uninstalled.
