Download DirectX 10 For Windows XP

Microsoft Windows DirectX 10 features heavily improved 3D rendering capabilities and several new features to deliver a new generation of visual effects with significantly improved game and 3-D application performance, Sadly, DirectX 10 is officially available for Windows Vista only and Microsoft has no plans to release DirectX 10 for Windows XP, However, guys at "Falling Leaf Systems" ported DirectX 10 on Windows XP starting the project named "Alky" with the aim to provide compatibility libraries for making DirectX 10 work on Windows XP with full support for application development API's, the Alky project is now closed but the source-code is made open-source for further development by community.

Directx 10 For Windows XP

The free DirectX 10 compatibility libraries provided by Alky project allow's developers to create DirectX 10 powered games and applications on platforms other than Windows Vista using Microsoft DirectX 10 SDK and API's, Windows XP users on forums and blogs are reporting successfully using Alky's DirectX 10 for Windows XP to port and play Directx 10 only games like Halo 2 and Shadowrun on Windows XP.

You can download Alky's un-official DirectX 10 For Windows XP here, once downloaded simply extract the zip archive and copy the d3d10.dll, d3dx10.dll, d3dx10.dll, dxgi.dll, and Nucleus.dll files to your Windows folder usually C:\windows\system32\.

Direct download links


nice files


very thank


thanks for the directx 10



i had a problem on my installed games because of this...
example: gta san andreas fail to run.and other old games that release on directx 8...
do u know why ?
or it's my mistake on installing it??

no mistakes on installation from cd will occur.if yes,uninstall then reinstall back.if it still fails.that means the computer u are using may be out of date or your computer did not meet the requirements of the game:
The operating system has to be Windows 2000 or Windows XP with DirectX 9.0 installed.

If you want be able to run GTA: San Andreas, the game has to find on your PC the following: 1 GHz CPU, 256 MB of RAM, graphics card with 64 MB RAM and 3.6 GB of free space on the hard disk. These are the minimum requirements.

For a smooth gaming experience, Rockstar recommends a Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon XP, 384 MB RAM and a 128 MB graphics card. An Audigy2 soundblaster and a gamepad are also recommended.

The full version of the game will require 4.7 GB of free space.

gta san andreas

All this has to be increased

do more researches

Graphics Moron not grafics

Oi not everybody speaks English natively. What he/she wrote would be typical of a Spanish speaking individual who is attempting to be polite by writing here in English. I am so sick of individuals who consider the internet an excuse to drop all effort at wisdom and just mouth off like juveniles on the school bus. Why don't you think first?

yeah man espeacially since spanish is a phinetic language meaning you spell it the same way as how it sounds

That'd be 'phonetic' then

Dude, but she\he can use his\her brain and use Google Translator! Sucker :-P

MS has no XP release for dx10 or 11 (Win7-Vista only)

Try installing and then try dxdiag (run command).. you'll see XP still runs on 9.0c (the latest MS release)

Makaseh yu, api sai wat ngerti?


DirectX 10 For Windows XP here,

The Files don't work.

I'm Trying to get Direct X for Windows XP.

I clicked on the link and went and downloaded the files.

Once I had the files downloaded I extracted them to

C: - Windows - System32

Then once they where placed in there

I tried to use the program FPSC x10 Which is a mandatory for you to have DX10 for it to be used.

The Program did not work and gave me a error and almost killed my computer which I have to Quickly

do a System Restore and Went to blue screen a couple of times intill I got back hear to post this.

Now Normally on DX9 you can use the program but you just can't test maps or do some things.

But them things I can't do I REALLY need to do.

I don't think the files work and I SERIOUSLY say don't download them.

Unless someone can tell me I did something wrong or there is something else that needs to be done.

But I did fellow what I was told and all I got was Error's and Blue Screens.

I would love it if someone would send me a E-mail telling me how to do it my e-mail is:

This thing f$*kt up my computer. All games work very bad. I don’t recommended to install. just install vista or 7. i want the regular updates because i am a heavy gamer.
Good luck!

Haha real funny reading what story this made in the comment section.

Works.. but most dx10 games require Vista… you can play the russian version of Cryostasis on XP (vista only) with this fix.

I recently installed halo 2 on my xp pc, it works fine, but when I go onto the cmpaign, it doesn't work, it goes as far as the choosing difficulty, but when I choose it, all the options go away and the background is still there. Then it stops the music, and starts again with the choir music, and 5 seconds into it, it stops and restarts the background animation and restarts the choir music and into it another 5 seconds it stops and does the same thing. IT DOES THAT FoREVER until I press esc or backspace Which takes me back to choosing difficulty. Please tellme if getting directx 10 would fix this.

Does it really works?well, actually i try to install it first.Then it really appears in my dxdiag that i had a directx10.But when i try to run the game it says directx10 not installed.Hows that?

that's good

Do your research ladies and gentlemen!

Microsoft DID NOT publish directx 10 & 11 for XP. If they did, they would lose sales in Vista and Windows 7. Only thing left to do is actually buy =(.

Thank you very much.

It doesn't work on my pc.


Hey there guys! I just wanna ask u if this DX10 works with game "They Came From The Skies" Thanks

I have installed it in my PC. It has great features for 3D Renderings but When a DirectX 10 application runs on a Windows Vista-based computer that has multiple graphics cards, the computer does not use the secondary graphics card.

thanks for this site owners or partners for posting max info for everything that corresponds to what we search..........


thank you


The Dx10 download files were taken offline by RapidShare "File Not Found" is the error you get if you attempt to download it. I had to go to the pirate bay in order to get my copy of Direct X for Windows XP.
