    Hi,

    upgraded from 8.1 to 10-10240.
    Old game (TotalWar - Rome) doesn't start, stating that DX9 files are missing.
    Previous 8.1 install had no issues, DXsetup Netinstaller was executed to download all.

    When trying to start DXsetup under 10 I get message, that installer is for (list of systems = 10 not listed!).

    Is there a new installer around that supports Win10?
    Or another method to install required DX9 files?

    Thanks

    Just download DirectX 9c from MS Downloads and install. Works fine with Windows 10!

    Did Microsoft kill DirectX 9 game support for Windows 10?

    Directx 9 files have not been included since Windows vista
    They don't use DirectX 9 when they can use DirectX 11 and 12.
