Sure you can. But is better if the installer you ask/downloads it if needed. Don't make everyone download that with the installer. If they are a gamer, odds are that they already have it installed in the first place. I would keep what the average gamer needed to download and play the game as lean as possible.

thank you RobbSnow
also I ask if the Setup 'DirectX End-User Runtime.exe' the exact namefile is 'directx_Jun2010_redist.exe' is good for Windows 10 .
if is not ok for Windows 10, what version I have to install ?
On Windows 7 the 'directx_Jun2010_redist.exe' is ok.
thank you very much.

If you have the latest version of AppGameKit V2 then you shouldn't need to install a different version of DirectX if the game is being run on Windows 10.

Older version of AppGameKit required DirectX for sound not graphics.

From the Build 2.0.16 change log

Quote: "•Windows 8 and 10 no longer require the DirectX End-User Runtime to be installed, Windows 7 and below still require it for audio"
