    Directx 8.1/9 games not working on Windows 10

    Hello community i have a question. As i have mentioned it above on the subject my directx 8.1/9 games wont work on my computer. For example i wanted to play GTA San andreas. After i launched it it said 'Grand theft auto SA requires at least Directx version
    9.0'. Mycomputer is a Gaming laptop which is dell. I searched and searched in the internet for hours and hours then i found a solution that u should download 'directx june 2010'. Then i downloaded it. I simply just downloaded the files in my documents and
    clicjed directx setup. Then after it finished i launched it. It kept bring that message. Ive tried in many games like Gta III and Gta vice city.

    Well this is my question i would like to hear from the community for answers! Thanks!!
