    Well, i just bought a new laptop, it came with directx 12, problem goes when i try to play any steam game, before launching any game it tries to install directx but cant. i tried to solve it by myself with a manual installation, didnt work out in anyway.

  2. unable to play some games with directx 12

    Hi,

    I will certainly help you with the issue.

    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:


    • What happens when you try to play the games with the DirectX 12? Do you get any error message/code? If yes, then provide us the complete error message/code.
    If you are unable to play games which doesn't support DirectX 12 then, you can manually download the supportable DirectX for the games.

    I suggest you to refer to the below article on How to install the latest version of DirectX.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/179113

    Some games comes with the supported DirectX application embedded within the game's application, so that you can install it manually from the game.

    You can also try to open the games in the compatibility mode.


    • Right-click on the setup file of the game and click on ‘properties’.

    • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8/8.1 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed.

    • Once this is done, Restart the computer.
    Please get back to us with an update. We will be glad to help.

    Thank you.
     
  3. 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.

    Gaming Error DirectX

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting you query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and will guide you in the right direction.

    To assist you better please provide few details.

    1. What is the make and model of the computer?

    2. Does the error occurs only when trying to play this game?

    The issue could be due to the oldest version of DirectX and outdated drivers.

    Let's try the below methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1: First, I would suggest you to check that which version of Direct X is currently installed on your computer.

    To use the DirectX Diagnostic Tool to determine the version of DirectX that is installed on your computer, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    2. Type dxdiag, and then click OK.

    3. On the System tab, note the version of DirectX that is displayed on the DirectX Version line.

    4. On the various tabs, check the version information for each DirectX file.

    5. When you are finished checking file versions, click Exit.

    If Windows cannot find the dxdiag program, DirectX installed on your computer. If this is the case, download and install the latest version of DirectX.

    Method 2: I suggest you to uninstall and Reinstall display drivers
    and check if it helps.

    To uninstall display driver, please follow these steps:

    1. Press Windows + X keys and click device manager.

    2. Click to expand display adapters, right click the adapter
    and click uninstall.

    Now, you may download and install latest display driver from the computer manufacturer's website and check.
