    Installed w10, got only directx 9Ex


    I installed w10,
    dxdiag is showing that it has directx 9Ex

    What happened to dx 12, 11.1 11.0 or even 10?

    how can it bundle such an older dx version?

    1. If higher dx versions are there in the installation pen drive, how can I extract the installations files from there and install them?

    2. I also have w8 and w7 installations, so how can I copy a higher dx version from those o.s. to w10?

    thanks.

    DXDiag will only show the most recent DX version that your card is capable of running (by stevenswilson).

    Right, it may be that your Win10 is the Upgrade and if the previous OS was Win7 w/SP1 or Win8.1 that may be a left-over involving your video adapter. The onboard adapters seem to be more difficult with drivers getting up to the latest DirectX, mine is an upgrade from Win7 w/SP1 on a Custom Gigabyte build with an Add-in PCIe X16 AMD Radeon HD 6670 video card, has DirectX 11.2. I haven't tried DirectX 12 yet, really don't need it.

    It's the function of the driver and GPU's BIOS and both have to be compatible with Dx12 APIs. Even my GPU relatively new (last 1 and1/2 years ago), Dx12 compatible drivers came out only few month ago. GPU was advertised as "Dx12 Ready" even before drivers for it were compatible.
    To use Dx12 few conditions should be met.
    GPU has to be at least DX12 ready and that does not mean full compatibility.
    Drivers have to be compatible.
    Software/games have to be compatible with Dx12 to make use of it. Newer games may be compatible with eventual patches for older ones.
    Windows 10, older versions of windows are not planned to get Dx12.

    no, it is a fresh install on a formatted partition on a second hdd. w7 and 28 are still existing and working on the previous hdd.

    same here. I also am not in to games.

    I use ChrisTV to watch TV on my pc using a TV Tuner. ChrisTV shows lines and haziness that distracts, so taking recomendation of christv site, I download WMEncoder_64bit_v9 , on running that is giving the error that "it requires directx media 8.1, so can't run." (even when my dx is 9E it doesn't recognize that, probably it needs clearcut 9.0 written there), so I tried to upgrade dx just to be able to run WMencoder.

    Thanks.

    I use ChrisTV v5.01, the last one that works just fine in any environment. Right now using it to monitor two security cameras thru USB adapters.
