How to check DirectX Version
  

HI
How to check on windows vista if I'm having directx 10 or DirectX 9. My graphic card is 8800 GTS, it supports the directx 10, Can I download directx version 10 now?

Thank you, regards, Deadcog.

To check what version of DirectX on your computer
  1. To open the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, type dxdiag in the search box, then click ENTER.

  2. Click the System tab, then under System Information, check the version number.

DirectX is what allows you to have impeccable image mode when you game or watch a movie and for her.

To check if it does not malfunction, this is straightforward.

Please start / run / and type "dxdiag" (without "").
It'll just check the different tabs that you have no warnings.

Vista have DirectX 10 without any doubt. And your card also supports directx 10, however you can always download the latest directx version from microsoft website, this won't effect much but always good to be updated.

Go to this address in order to get the latest version:

Go on windows update, look for updates ...

If you propose to download directx is that you have a later version than latest one ... and at the same time you can install it!

otherwise: Control Panel / Add / Remove Programs and watch list of what is already installed ...
