Is it possible emergence of a new version of the product with the support of DirectX 11.
I am asking because of all my programs need DirtectX 9 SDK on windows 7 and windows vista.

Only Windows Vista and Windows 7 can run DirectX 11. By staying with DX9 as the lowest common denominator, you can target more platforms that you otherwise could with just DX11.

There is no point in making a game with DX10/11 unless your engine also supports DX9.

Additionally, Vista comes with DX10 not DX11. So you'll still have to update it on that platform as well. DX11 will only work out-of-the-box for Windows 7.

So try checking to see if they have a compatible version installed and if not run dxwebsetup.exe by bundling it with your executable?

There is no one solution to your problem.

I don't know any .NET languages. Sorry.

I also don't know at what point DarkGDK checks for DX9 since it has its own special main loop. If you can't get your code to run before this check then you will have to write a loader.
