Microsoft DirectX 11 is a group of technologies that integrate into Windows and adds the capabilities required to run many of the most popular PC gaming titles on Windows.
To resolve this issue, install DirectX End-User Runtime. Notes When you run this package, no change is made to your version of DirectX, Direct3D 9, Direct3D 10.x, Direct3D 11.x, DirectInput, DirectSound, DirectPlay, DirectShow, or DirectMusic.
Whether it's from platforms like Steam or for games that have been purchased on other platforms or in hard copy format, DirectX 11 is necessary to take advantage of the graphics processing technology required to run them.
These newer technologies take some of the load off of the CPU for processing power and pass them on to the graphics card for more realistic-looking graphics rendering. NVIDIA and AMD (or ATI) graphics cards are fully capable of utilizing these options with DirectCompute 11.
Graphics processing, pixel shader, multi-threading
This iteration of DirectX includes graphics in full color, video support, rich audio streaming and the ability to run 3D graphics with the proper polygons and pixel shaders. It also comes with full installation for Direct3D 11 as well as the technologies included in other versions of the package that have grown up with the various versions of Windows over the past decade including DirectX 9 and DirectX 10.
Core new features: hardware-based tessellation, multi-threading support, and DirectCompute.
The DirectX Runtime that this package installs updates Direct3D, DirectInput and DirectSound; all components of the DirectX 11 series of updates.
Direct3D 11 is able to take advantage of all of the latest features in current generation PCs and the API is much faster than previous versions.
Virtually all graphics cards by NVIDIA and AMD support the features Microsoft includes here straight out of the box.
There may be issues with older video cards and especially those running on older versions of Windows such as Windows XP and Windows Vista. This can often lead to error messages such as Your graphics card does not support DirectX 11 features. A new video card is generally required to solve this issue.
Issues with Windows 10 systems
Windows 10 is fully compliant with DirectX 11 and all versions of Windows 8 and Windows 10 come pre-installed with DirectX 11. With that said, if there's an issue being experienced with graphics display on your PC, then this DirectX Runtime can be installed to solve that issue.
All in all, DirectX 11 is a huge step forward in video graphics processing and enables all of the most advanced features available in games for previous generations of Windows with the newest version, DirectX 12, taking the torch and improving on that even more.

It includes packages making multimedia elements such as video, color graphics, 3D animation and high definition audio a reality. The package here includes and offline installer which provides access to Microsoft's DirectX APIs.
As a requirement of most, if not all modern games, DirectX is usually installed on newer versions of Windows but in case there's an issue, the DirectX 9.0c package may be used to satisfy these requirements.
DirectX 9.0c includes support for Pixel Shader and Vertex Shader 3.0, along with many new features across all technologies, which can be accessed by applications using DirectX.
DirectX 9 Features include:
- Multi-Threading: The ability to scale across multi-core CPUs will enable developers to take greater advantage of the power within multi-core CPUs. This results in faster framerates for games, while still supporting the increased visual detailing.
- DirectCompute: Developers can utilize the power of discrete graphics cards to accelerate both gaming and non-gaming applications. This improves graphics, while also enabling players to accelerate everyday tasks, like video editing, on their Windows 7 PC.
Windows 7 comes with a newer version of DirectX but is fully compatible with all of the new features of DirectX 9.0c. Additionally, in order to take advantage of the features of DirectX, you must ensure that you have installed a DirectX compliant video card.
If you're wanting an even newer version, DirectX 10 is also available. This version is the download of the redistributable version. That means it may be included in software packages or just simply used freely by anyone wishing to update their DirectX version on Windows XP or Windows 7 (32-bit).
This package contains the DirectX 9.0c installer for Windows XP, the installer for Windows 7 and is compatible with the DirectX 9 redistributable from February 2010 and June 2010. This web installer package works with DirectX 9 graphics devices with WDDM 1.0 or higher drivers. In case you run into issues when installing this package, you may have an older video card that is not compatible with DirectX 9.0c.
The DirectX 9 SDK is also available for download from this site (use the search function).
Please note: If you are using Windows 7 and a game or other programs requires you to have DirectX 9.0c compatible video or audio driver installed, you should check to see whether there is a patch available for the game or program you have installed. In some cases, simply installing updated drivers for your video or audio card solves the problem. If updating drivers doesn't help, running the program in compatibility mode may.
