Download DirectX 10 for Windows XP


Download DirectX 10 for windows XP is available now. This DirectX 10 for windows XP still in alpha stages and isn’t the original of DirectX 10 files from Microsoft. As Microsoft has announced that the DirectX 10 currently support to Windows Vista only.

However, Cody Brocious the Alky Project leader has released a full preview of DirectX 10 Alky preview compatibility libraries for Microsoft DirectX 10 enabled games. These compatibility libraries allow the use of DirectX 10 games on platforms other than Windows Vista , and increase hardware compatibility even on Vista, by compiling Geometry Shaders down to native machine code for execution where hardware isn’t capable of running it. No reason for gamer to change or upgrade the OS and video card(s) to play the latest games.

Here are some pictures sample to difference’s from DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 on images quality.

DX 9 scenery from Flight Simulator X

And a rendering of the same scenery with DirectX 10

DirectX 10 Flight Simulator Screenshot

So, Here is DirectX 10 Alky preview  which can be used with DX10 SDK.
The DirectX 10 for Windows XP Preview contains a read me file which goes like this :-

To install:
Copy d3d10.dll, d3dx10.dll, d3dx10.dll, dxgi.dll, and Nucleus.dll to C:\windows\system32\

To get the examples:

  • Follow the instructions on Using Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition with the Microsoft Platform SDK
  • Download and install the DirectX SDK

To build and run an example:

  • Go to the Microsoft DirectX SDK folder, Samples, C++, Direct3D10, Tutorials, Tutorial12
  • Double-click “Tutorial12_2005.sln”
  • Select “Start Without Debugging” from the Debug menu.

There are a number of known issues with most of the tutorials, but they will all work to some extent. Tutorial 12 is currently the recommended example.

Please direct any feedback to the Falling Leaf Discussion forum

if you’re serious computer gamer, i highly recommended you give a try download on Direct10X for windows XP and install it. Then you feel the differences especially on the images rendering and images processing. However, Do it carefully !!!!

  • Gamer

    Thnx, thnx alot. U are excellent!!! What a work u have done!!!


    BTW, how shud i try it without the given examples??

  • Robert Heinze

    I copied over the DX10 files for XP like it described in the file & then tried to run a DirectX 10 game called “Lost Planet” but it still would not work?
    I am assuming the examples in the DirectX SDK file are the only examples that work with those DirectX 10 files I copied over to the System32 directory or am I missing something?

  • Beyonder

    Would I be able to use directx 10 hardware on WIndows XP and get all the advantages of that hardware?

    if your graphic card can support Direct X10, Then you have the advantages on Direct X10.

  • joe

    qeustion do you only need to copy the 5 dlls in to the system 32 folder to instal this because it says above this To install:
    Copy d3d10.dll, d3dx10.dll, d3dx10.dll, dxgi.dll, and Nucleus.dll to C:\windows\system32\ and the ohter stuf it says to get example and how to build example or do you also need to do the other things

  • Inox

    I followed the instructions. But when I tried to do the following “To build and run an example”, gets an error

    “Application error – The instructions at 0x7c80a2c8 reference memory at 0x00000066. The memory could not be read” click on ok to terminate the program. Click on Cancel to debug the program.

    what the problem??

  • Xynder

    So will This new .dll also improve the graphic of other pre-directX 10 games ? will it make pre-directX 10 VGA powered up to ?

  • Rick

    don’t do what he says warning I was lucky system restore was on almost lost use of my computer for copying to system 32 mcaffee went bananas. notice how the d3dx10.dll is repeated which shows you something is amiss.

  • Thumper

    Um? Hello people?

    This release from Alky Project is a SAMPLE build — it’s still in the alpha stage! It’s a proof-of-concept that can run some simple Direct3D 10 programs from the DirectX SDK. It will NOT run full games like Shadowrun or Halo 2… for that, you’re going to have to wait, as it’s just not there yet.

  • Zabuza0065

    thx a lot, hope it works

  • Crysis

    Would DirectX 10 work on my 2GM RAM NVIDIA GetForce 7950 GX2?????

  • ZeusR

    Good Work!!!

  • cmdrleeadama

    ok guys, for those of you that keep asking, in order for DX10 to work, YOU NEED A DX10 CAPABLE CARD. I say this in caps only for effect, not to troll. That intel video card mentioned above? not gonna work, or that 7950 as well. DX10 cards are NVIDIA 8-series and AT-2k series chips only.

    and i tried running this with Hellgate, it doesn’t give me an option for dx10 (im on a 8400gs) but i think thats because the alpha drivers are to showcase, not play

  • eXon

    Ok, enough with the alphas and the crashes.

    Here’s a 100% reliable way that I used to run DirectX10 based applications/games on my PC.

    (Assuming you already have Windows XP x86)
    1. Install Windows Vista x86(Any Version, evaluation/OEM/unoffical ones work too) on an empty partition.

    2. Start Vista. Then install the games or applications using the SAME “Program Files” directory that of Vista.

    3. Restart and run Windows XP x86.

    4. Go to the “Program Files” directory that of Vista and run your exe.

    See for your self =)

    It worked for me and I was like WOW! Microsoft are screwed :p

  • BrianD

    eXon, is that true I got a DX10 coming on friday or monday???

  • while diagnosis of directX have an difference experiance like fast visualing ,etc.

  • Socrates

    I’m feeling lucky to have direct x. thank you for your software.

  • John

    The 2 pictures are damn fakes. The one pic, which should be “DIrectX10” is a real time picture and the other is smoothed with photoshop. There are many fakes. For the second picture even DirectX10 isn’t able yet, and FSX really not.
    If that picture was real, there would be many awards fot “best graphics” in year for FSX, but they didn’t get such one.
    At the moment Crysis is the game, which reahes that second fake pic the most

    i have nVIDIA Ge Force 5500.. does Dx 10 run or supports it..??

  • km


    i don’t think Geforce 7 series will support DirectX 10 on Windows Vista… which the official side stated support the most is Full Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 Support.

  • km


    The DirectX 10 only support GeForce 8 series only. However, you can have a try to install it… please share with us whether is working or not DirectX 10 can work on other GeForce series

  • Jay

    Has anyone else tried what Exon said about running the game from the Vista directory on XP and directX 10 would work? If it does that would be amazing forget all this hassle and waiting for proper release, anyone can confirm? I don’t just want to take it from Exons word. no offence Exon. lol

  • gamelord

  • Hackmania

    errm… so i can make my dx 9 card to a dx10 card??

  • jdog

    a lot of you people seemed to be confused

    you need a DX10 CARD

    what your doing with these files, is basically FORCING windows (which doesn’t normally run dx10) to run DX10. Those files that you enter, edit windows into finding your dx10 card, and improving your graphics with it. theoretically this can work, by using these files or something of the sort, but from what I’ve seen in the comments theres some problems getting them to work

    if anyone has made the files work successfully can u clearly leave a comment saying, (yes this does work)


  • jdog

    sry, forgot to say that whatever dx card you have, it will stay that way

    theres no way to change the dx version of your card

  • Evjatar

    hey guys

    just understand this
    The ONLY graphic cards that support directx 10 are the nvidia 8 series and some rubbish ati cards.

    The nvidia 7,6,5,4,3 series do NOT support directx 10. This is something in the hardware that only nvidia 8 series have got. The 8 series is the first card to support the new directx 10 and all of the older cards only support max direct x 9.0c

    So stop with those foolish questions if your intel something supports it, cause the DON’T!!!! this also means all the nvidia cards before the 8 series.

    directx 10 for xp is the best thing ever

  • Vista>XP

    Guys, why go through the hoops of trying to hack something to get it to work where it was never meant to work when you can just get Vista and you’re set? Yes, Vista is more resource intensive so you may need to add some more RAM, but other than that, it is a fine OS and from my personal experience, makes XP look like crap. Stop the Vista hating and just get with the times and upgrade. You’ll be happy you did.

  • Sheevar

    ..why i cannot download the DirectX?? The link refresh the page..

  • dan

    Most of you guys have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. If you just did a little research you could see how your comments make little sense. It makes me wonder how you even found your way to this site or know what dx10 is. I would think that you would know that it doesn’t ‘change your video card forever’ or whatever bs that was.

  • Jeanke

    Wow, so many dumb people on this forum… No wonder OSS never gets any further with serious support for games. There is no way to have a proper exchange of information if the forums always get flooded with this kind of crap!
    1st rule: read the basic info on the subject before posting the dumbest questions. Just type DirectX 10 in google and go to the wikipedia link, nothing more, nothing less.
    2nd rule: Do at least a keyword search on this page before posting the same question for the 1000th time.
    3rd rule: Understand that DirectX is a Microsoft product, so don’t come here asking for basic support on DirectX. Try what’s offered here, check the results and then ask relevant questions.

  • Boogie

    Well i managed to get the DX10 on a windows XP however… Bioshock wont load anymore and there is no way to revert to DX9. On a side note, i can see a big boost in game performance(COD4/HL2/Oblivion) but i can honestly say, if you want to have DX10 that badly just get Windows Vista, and if you cant run Vista then don’t bother, your not missing out.

  • HSandman

    For those who used dx10 on winXP… Crysis runs fine, but I was not able to get assassins creed working. If you silly like me and did not have restore point to uninstall dx10 you will need to search the windows/system32 for the following files and delete them.
    Install DX9(c) after you done. Reboot. 😉

  • Vista>XP

    You need a DX10 capable video card and Windows Vista to run DX10, period. By the time anyone manages to come up with a stable and feature-full version of DX10 for XP, XP will be discontinued so don’t waste your time. And if you don’t want to or can’t upgrade to Vista, stick with DX9 because the hassle of trying to get DX10 on XP is NOT worth it. DX9 is fine.

  • michael

    Vista>xp, you said ” Vista is more resource intensive so you may need to add some more RAM”, from what I’ve seen it actually is not more resource intensive. It allocates memory differently and takes what is available, but gives it back as needed, but people misunderstand. That is not the reason I don’t want to upgrade. It does not support older hardware, such as my TV tuner card, as well as software such as Nero, etc. It would get expensive very quickly to shell out for new versions of all my software and hardware on top of the $$$ for Vista itself.

  • Asuka X

    If u are really want to get DirectX 10 without wasting your old hardware and software… just get some extra cash to buy Windows Vista Ultimate… it has a lot of Driver inside it, then update your Windows Vista at the Microsoft Updates.. It really works! Trust me!

  • Matt


    The reason the other one doesn’t work anyone is because the company that is working on this project has given up on it. Here’s a quote from their site:

    “It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Falling Leaf Systems, LLC. We set out over a year ago to provide users of both “old and unsupported” as well as “alternative” Operating Systems the ability to run the latest games for the PC. Unfortunately, Falling Leaf Systems was unable to achieve that goal.”

    I dont want to run risks yet, i will stay with my DX9c untill this DX10 became more stable, its a great job that this guys done, most of pple would turn to Windows Vista just for use DX10 in their games to see HD content, but leaving WinXP users without DX10 its really annoying, Microsoft just want us to pay them to upgrade to Vista, they could have easily made a DX10 version for XP

    Some of you said DX10 works only with nvidia 8 series and ati 2k series only. i doubt that. intel graphics media accelerator 4500 series supports DX10 as well.

    I can open games I could open before and I do not know how to fix this problem

  • Fadi

    WOW! Now I can install and my XP with DX10 installed!!
    Very useful project guys!

  • so i download it .. and now i install … : ) … later i tell you what happend .. ; ))9


    D805@2GB@9800GT …

  • nice…. it works ..on 9800GTX

  • lolol

    FFS, there’s no such goddamn thing as DX10 for XP. Stop trying and just upgrade your computer already. API used to write XP is different from the API used to write Vista/Win7. DX10 drivers have only been written using the new API. Whatever this is.. it’s not DX10.

  • Conejocachondo

    Apparently working. Dxdiag shows DX10. HL2 reports “software DirectX = DX10?.Uau!!!…. But….. apparently, my Radeon 4850 Catalyst 8.11 XP drivers, DON´T support DX 10. It´s useless OS supporting DX10 while your drivers doesn’t support it. DX10 games doesn’t install, because they tell they need Vista to play in DX10 mode. Comments? anyone really played games in XP in DX10 mode? With Radeons? Catalyst version?

  • Kaczor

    you can download direx 10 for xp heare :

  • Direct x 10 is so great on xp
    thanx for that

  • BrainFart

  • Kaczor
  • Pranto

    i dont have problems while installing direct x. i dont see what the problems you guys are having.

  • Nitin

    When I try to configure the video options for Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X., the DirectX 10 tab is not accessible. But the dxdiag showed the version as DirectX 10.0. Is this normal?

  • joe

    most of you people shouldn’t be using a pc if you can’t handle these instructions….
    also I noticed the guy with the intel 82945 graphics, you won’t be playing ANY and I stress ANY dx10 game with integrated agp graphics and a single core cpu


    will i have better FPS on games like COD4 or CSS if I update directx from 9.0c to 10???

  • madhupaul

    direct x is so great for xp , thank you

  • Hassan

    Man, its just fake. DirectX10 is only for Vista. Don’t waste your time by downloading it.

    it has a new updated addon which copy’s all the new dx10 & dx11 files straight to system32 at T13 of the install..

  • Steven

    I downloaded this and it worked and all, But it screw’s around with the NIVIDA Driver’s and turn’s it into a realy bad DX 10 version.With Pop Up’s coming up all the time about my DX and missing files. When i Downloaded this i realised it overheated my computer alot more faster and added only a little bit more texture to games, its a good program and all but its not stable and you cant change back to DX 9 unless reinstalling Window’s.

  • mohamed

    this program is great

    i did leave a new comment on a new direct x 10 version with a new link also.. but it got taken off..

  • dude

    DirectX10 for Microsoft Windows XP all versions! Within 2 years we have searched for the method of binding DirectX10 to Windows XP, and came close to solving the problem running any DX10 of compatible programs. At this time we succeeded in increasing the speed and quality graphics in games! At the moment included are 3 different versions for different needs. In the current version of the updated preset GameFix new.

    What’s New:
    Version AVF – 16.10.2009
    [!] Fixed false positives antivirus
    [!] Added and updated library of the October version of DirectX
    [+] Added a patch for STALKER ERs (10 patch) and Call of Pripyat
    [+] Updated version of an installer to 5.3.4
    [-] Folder Game Fix moved to a separate file

    The direct x 10 AVF (Anti-Virus Fix) has been re-made by a good friend of mine.. and made it into a silent install..
    now it installs as normal.. but now copy’s the important dx 10 & dx 11 files straight into system32 silently all in one go..

  • Web Hosting India

    Please provide me link to download DirectX 10.1 for windows XP. I directly installed something from microsoft but the “dxdiag” still shows 9c

  • Aquila

    If I download this and it doesn’t work for some of my games how do I switch back to Directx 9 ?

  • over

    Thanks i search for it long time

  • Mar

    Photoshop and After Effects dont work anymore, ever since i installed this “direct x 10 AVF (Anti-Virus Fix)”

    The error says
    “The procedure entry point wglSwapMultipleBuffers could not be located in the dynamic link libraryOPENGL32.dll.”

    Error image:

    Can someone please tell me, how do i fix this or how do i downgrade directx 11 to directx 9.
    I tried reinstalling photoshop and AE but it still doesnt work.

    Thank you very much!
    Best regards.

  • MG

    And another thing
    When go to: start -> run -> “dxdiag”, i get a message which says “DxDiag has detected there may have been a problem accessing Direct3D the last time program was used. Would you like to bypass Direct3D this time?”

    And when i go to “DirectX files” tab in this program it says:
    “The file d3d9.dll is an old version, which could cause problems.
    You should reinstall DirectX to get the latest version.”

    I tried installing DirectX 9 again, but it doesnt help.

  • MG

    … i solved the problem with system restore. I’m back with DirectX 9.0c and there are no problems.

  • sandmoon

    I can’t believe this is still here.

    THIS DOES NOT WORK – IT’S A FAKE. It NEVER worked, and probably never will.

    I agree you mate.

  • ManOfBodom

    REALLY THANKS!!! It’s great , because i just bought COD:Modern Warfare 2! With this direct this game will be so much better! PS. Pozdrawiam wszystkich Polaków i polecam! – Im from Poland. xD 😉

  • RouterJax

    I dunno what some of u people are complaining about, this works wonders for me. Copied all 6 files(instead of just the 5 mentioned here) and done. It made a big difference. I use XP(because I hate Vista.. and can’t get 7), but my card(GeForce 8200M G) supports DX10, which isn’t officially available on XP, so I had to stick with 9.0c up until just now.

    In Oblivion, I used to only be able to play with low settings, without HDR and stuffs. But with this installed I can now enable HDR, fully detailed water & a bit of a specular.

    My laptop crashed at the cops-get-trigger-happy chapter of Mirror’s Edge where somebody got framed for murder and therefore dropped it, but with this DX10 I could even push the texture quality up to high(alas with everything else lowered) level without a fuss.

    And to check with backwards compatible, I tried to run GTA: SA and I’m happy to find that older games like this can be run on its fullest graphic quality.

    My laptop isn’t really a powerhouse, so I’m really happy this DX10 improves my gaming experience, and expands its gaming span. I almost gave up on getting updated with PC games.

    don’t download this! it isn’t officia and detroyed my computer, i had to format my harddrive and reinstall everything!!! argghh. there are some misc. errors in the configuration of the binary matrix procedures

  • Glen Badham

    i would just like to say im an nearly a hundred percent sure this is NON WORKING as i have done everything said to have done from various sites i applied files as accoreding and well look for your self

    : DirectX Version : DirectX 10.0(4.10.0000.5515)

    Guess What

    when clicked ‘Run 64-bit DxDiag’
    DirectX Version : DirectX 9.0c(4.09.0000.0904)

    and when run CALL OF PRIPYAT deffinitly NOT DX10
    so beware there are also files claiming to run dx10 on xp but belive me i aint come across any that work or virus free (except the one on this site)

    my personal advice (if u really want to RUN DX10
    get vista sadly i am going to and will dearly miss xp but my older machine will still be so i can see if anything happens but really WASTE OF TIME just get LEGIT O.S JOB DONE i hope this infomation is helpfull to others and i also came across a website (you find for yourself it took me long enough LOL!)saying that this project was stopped but then again its all about RESOURCES thanks alot and its ashame DX10 will proberly NEVER WORK on XP but hey we all no what to do RIGHT?

  • Glen Badham

    just to let everyone know iv been up since last post roughly 12-13 hours and well im rebooting my system and not bothering at all with this shit plain and simple get vista if u want dx10 or windows 7 PISS TAKE THOUGH then again on that note M$ need to make there money and also glad to hear that you get a 3 year warrnety now funny mine rrod jan 10 brought in jan 08 2 years :@ ne ways let this be a lesson

    FIX msvcrt.dll issue:

    The best solution to the problem msvcrt.dll the following:

    Go to the Windows folder and search for “dwmapi.dll” files and delete them all!

    The dwmapi.dll file are typically located in the following folders:


    But I’m not sure that only here, It would be better to search for them!

    This method is completely solved my problem.

  • E-102 Gamma

    I don’t trust this.

    I went to system32 and found that there are ALREADY d3d10_## files in it, and the install guide above mentions THREE “d3d10.dll”s.

    And this “Anti-Virus Fix” sounds especially dangerous. What if, by installing it, I’m actually lowering my anti-virus’s defenses against a virus or Trojan?

    Also, you people have terribly bad spelling. |: (

    No matter your windows system is XP or Vista, the easiest way to speed up your PC is have a tuneup360 in it; you can try the software “tuneup360”. My friends and I all use it, it’s seems really useful.
