View Full Version : BS:M, Windows Vista, and DX9.0c

Obviously Windows Vista comes with DX10 installed.

However, I was prompted to install DX9.0c during the game installation... I cancelled; thinking that reverting back to DX9 under Vista could be bad, and that I thought Vista was supposed to be backward compatible with DX9 games.

Well, after a successful installation, sans DX9, BS:M says that .dll's related to DX9 are missing.

Any other Vista users experience this? Is it even safe to install DX9.0c?

Thanks in advance.

Install directx 9, it won't do any harm. In some cases it might be necessary.
