Directx 9 won't work with Vista anymore. It isn't only the directx version that makes your programs incompatible with Vista. If there isn't any update for them the only way to use them is to dual boot with Xp or find something equivalent that's compatible with Vista.

You can download the latest DirectX from here.

Vista has DirectX9 libraries as well as older ones, just check \Windows\system32\d3d8.dll for example.

Graphics problems in games are usually related to graphics card drivers, not DirectX.

Hi you can use DirectX Eradicator . DirectX Eradicator is designed to safely remove the DirectX runtime core component from Windows operating systems. It gives you the power to install and uninstall any version of DirectX as you wish.
