How to Install Directx 9.0C on Windows XP Without Internet


DirectX is a framework designed by Microsoft to offer a unified 3D programming language to games and software programmers. Direct X is constantly upgraded to offer new and better 3D functions. Windows XP is compatible only with DirectX9.0c and not DirectX 10 or 11. Upgrades can be done online or, if not available, using a CD/DVD of a game released after 2005.

Things You'll Need

  • CD/DVD of a game released after 2005
  • Turn your computer on and wait to boot in Windows XP.

  • Insert the CD/DVD of the game in your CD/DVD reader.

  • Go to the "Start" menu and select "My Computer."

  • Right click on the icon of the game in your CD/DVD and select "Explore."

  • Double click on the "DirectX" folder.

  • Double click on "dxsetup.exe." Make sure the DirectX version is 9.0c before continuing.

  • Select "Next" twice to install DirectX 9.0c on your computer.

Tips & Warnings

  • Most games will prompt you to install DirectX if your computer has an outdated version.
  • Some games will not have the DirectX folder.
