  1. Directx 7 games on Windows 10


    I would like to consider upgrading to windows 10 however, there is no support for Fullscreen Exclusive Mode for Directx 7 games. Because of the lack of support for these games, Windows 10 locks these games to the monitor's refresh rate which therefore; makes it impossible to enjoy.


    Is there any hope that Windows 10 will return Fullscreen Exclusive Mode to the USER'S control?


    I'd really like to play these older games.


    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    :)

  2. Directx 7 under Windows 10 issue?

    Hi Crystal,

    Most games or applications created for older versions of Windows like Windows 7 will still work on Windows 10. However, there are some programs that might run poorly or not at all. Since you have already tried some of the possible solutions that can help
    resolve the issue, there is a possibility that the game that you are playing is facing the condition.

    The DirectPlay for Managed Code is still supported on DirectX 9.0. On Windows 10, the default version installed on your PC is DirectX 12. Since the game that you are trying play is using DirectX 7, you may
    run the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter by following the steps on this
    link
    to automatically detect and fix some of the most common issues. We also suggest that you change the settings on your PC by following the information on the same link under
    Compatibility settings.

    You can also try to enable the Legacy Components to allow your PC to use the functionality of the DirectPlay.

    • Press the Windows key on your keyboard and type
      Turn Windows features on or off
      .
    • In the Windows Features window, look for Legacy Components
      and check it.
    • Restart your computer to complete the process and save the changes.

    For more information about DirectPlay, you may visit this
    link
    .

    Should you need further assistance, you can contact us anytime.

    Directx not working with games

    Hi Trey,

    There is a possibility that the components of DirectX within the game you're trying to play is damaged. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need you to answer the following questions:

    • Which build, version and edition of Windows is installed on your computer?
    • Are you experiencing the same issue when you are trying to play all of the installed games on your computer, or is the issue isolated with specific games?
    • Are you experiencing the same issue even when you are using other user profiles?

    In the meantime, we suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the games that are experiencing an issue with DirectX. Doing so can repair its components. Let us know if the same issue persists.

    We are looking forward to your response.
