cheers everyone & hello again,

I havent been in this forum for a little while, say ages ago.

I am considering to buy X10 for a small micro-level games project that I want to start using my own music & sound-design. for this purpose I am considerung to buy X10. I need those DX10 shaders.

however, in order to prepare my Win 7 64 Bit system to be able to run it I tried to get rid of DX11 since the official page with the system requirements for X10 tells me to do so ("suggest revert to Directx 10.1").

I failed even with deleting the directx entry in the registry as starting DXDIAG shows me a clear "Direct X11" installed. also installed Direct X 10.1 SDK on the same computer.

I fear that Win 7 came with that DX11 and sticks to it. is this correct?

what did I miss and what can I do?

thanx in advance!

You shouldn't need to un-install DX11. I've got X11 and X10.1 and can run FPSC X10 just fine.

I have both as well. I think the problem is only when you have DX11 but not 10.1. Having both should not be an issue.

thanx, guys...

ok, I will give it a try then. the SDK for 10.1 did install something on top of DX11, but then I got nervous and downloaded the actual DirectX runtime and the installer told me that there the system is fully actual and refused to update...

fingers crossed.

im afraid fpsc x10 needs direct x10.1 to work or it would be called fpsc x11.....and yes download the direct x10.1 from microsoft website you can run both x11 and x10.1....at the same time..

When I first obtained X10 I only had the DX11 sdk installed, it worked and ran fine, test games and build games. But now I aldo installed DX10.1 sdk, still works fine.

DX11 cannot be uninstalled as it a part of the OS. But that should never be a problem
