What is Microsoft DirectX?

Microsoft DirectX is the core technology for Windows systems that delvers high-speed games and multimedia on your computer. It provides you with an ideal operating system for operating programs containing full-color videos, graphics, high-quality audios and 3D animations. DirectX also provides updates for performance and security with new features from various different technologies accessible through DirectX APIs.

It runs on Windows Server 2003 SP1 and SP2, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista and Windows XP SP3. The Microsoft DirectX End-User Runtime updates the latest and previous versions of DirectX. Its installation covers XAudio, D3DX, XInput, HLSL Compiler and Managed DirectX 1.1 units. Direct3D, DirectSound and DirectInput are part of DirectX Runtime and covered by Windows operating system, therefore, they are not covered by this updater package.
