  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.

    Windows Store prompts directx11 to launch game

    Hi Sam,

    Before we proceed, I would like you to provide the information stated below:

    1. Where you trying to install any game from Store when you receive the above prompt?

    2. If yes, can you state the game that you tried to run?

    3. If no, can you state what was the task you tried to perform that prompted the above error?

    4. Can you send us the screenshot of the window which contains the above error?

    For now, I suggest that you check the DirectX Version installed on your system. Follow the below steps to check the DirectX Version:

    • Press Windows key + R from the Desktop.
    • Type dxdiag and hit Enter.
    • Check the DirectX Version.

    I also suggest you to try and run DirectX Diagnostic Tool and also try other steps in the article given below and check if it helps.

    Note:
    DirectX is a suite of technologies used by many multimedia apps in Windows. If you're having problems getting a game or movie to play properly, the DirectX Diagnostic Tool can help you find the problem.
