One of the user Paul had confirmed this working. Here is his comment

I  don’t know about you guys but all i did was download the dll files and put them into windows/system32 folder and then downloaded the direct x SDK program and i got direct x10 successfully for xp.

I’m not joking. It was very easy and it worked on the first try. I don’t know if you have xp professional and if that makes a difference? But i got it to work for xp professional with SP3. I’m able to play “The Witcher” with the same amount of graphics as on vista.

The only drawback is that it seems to run a little slower but for direct x10 to work for xp, i guess i can deal with that little of a con. So just download the dll files into system32 folder and then download direct x SDK and it should work. Maybe I’m just lucky. Otherwise everyone be cool

and then check the instructions below to how to hack it. ( You can skip this process now and directly read our tutorial on How to Install Directx 10 RC2 Pre Fix 3 )

The Preview contains a read me file which goes like this :-

To install:
Copy d3d10.dll, d3dx10.dll, d3dx10.dll, dxgi.dll, and Nucleus.dll to C:\windows\system32\ (present in downloaded file)

To get the examples:

  • Follow the instructions on Using Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition with the Microsoft Platform SDK
  • Download and install the DirectX SDK

To build and run an example:

  • Go to the Microsoft DirectX SDK folder, Samples, C++, Direct3D10, Tutorials, Tutorial12
  • Double-click “Tutorial12_2005.sln”
  • Select “Start Without Debugging” from the Debug menu.

There are a number of known issues with most of the tutorials, but they will all work to some extent. Tutorial 12 is currently the recommended example.

Please direct any feedback to the Falling Leaf Discussion forum @ DX 10 on XP Thread

According to Alky Project ,

  • These libraries allow the use of DirectX 10 Games on platforms other than Windows Vista
  • Increase hardware compatibility even on Vista, by compiling Geometry Shaders down to native machine code for execution where hardware isn’t capable of running it. No longer will you have to upgrade your OS and video card(s) to play the latest games.

I would suggest anybody who wants to give it a try, use the Falling Leaf Discussion forum and then go ahead with it. Do it carefully and If you don’t know how , you have the link above. Visit the Alky Home page and Update yourself.I hope to see the magic of this on XP like it Directx10 for Vista and Some excellent Xp tweaks or If you want to increase your productivity with vista

  3. @vilo: As it says the tutorial is missing, I have even heard that in some forum one of the guy did it. But not very sure. Can you please download the tutorial part and try again ?

    Ashish

  4. I’m happy for you guys using xp…
    I just recently upgraded to Vista and got an nVidia 8800GTS so I can run DX10, And is a good card to have because it’s fast as hell regardless of DX10 or DX9,
    Well now you XP users have even more of a reason to get the 8800 cards now.
    XP rocks man… allways could find a way to get stuff done on XP. God bless hackers.
    OK, see you all at the gaming severs!

  5. nana nadhiera

    Can you explain why people are stiil using Window XP till now ? Is Windows VISTA not good? And why XP is most popular among the windows…

  6. @Nana: Vista has high hardware requirement and vista is too heavy. Its like people are more satisfied with xp . Unless you have 2gb of ram I cant use it if i have to use other applications too

  7. @brynjar: One of the guys at a forum reported to be using it successfully since one month. He also played DX10 games using it on XP without Vista

  8. cungalungaa1

    I have one question ..
    are this project gona help us to play DX10 Games on XP only, or i can have DX10 graphic features on my XP.
    Couse i wont use Vista!! couse its sucks and i have gf8800 dx10 and i cant use all my graphic card features.

  9. @cungalungaa1 : Not sure whether it will work with dx10 card but should theoretically as it same as Directx10 driver but not exactly the same.

  10. Did ANYONE try it? Does it even work? I am seeing all over that it’s not possible. The forum seems dead as well…noone seems to be on it for months.

  11. uuhm, i was completly convinced that it had to work.
    but now i dont see it happening.

    still hoping that it would work, and i keep trying to get dx10 on my xp

  12. “To build and run an example:
    1) Go to the Microsoft DirectX SDK folder, Samples, C++, Direct3D10, Tutorials, Tutorial12

    I DON’T UNDERSTAND IT^^ Can someone exmlane it to me?
    I can’t find Microsoft DirectX SDK folder. And how do I start without debugging from the debug menu?

    thanks

  13. Hi, I read about this and if I understand to this I can use DX10 feature in XP and on non DX10 card right? And my second question is: Why the msconfig says that Ive got DX 9.0c after I instal DX10? And third: Why I cant use DX10 settings in a games? Thanks for reply.

  14. @Oqix:

    1: Yes. One of the person I know is using the same way. However he said sometimes it does not work.
    2. This is a hack so possibly the version has not changed so you are still seeing the Old version.
    3. I am not sure on this. Will have to wait if somebody can confirm.

    HTH

  15. So I try this hack version of DX10 and my results is:I cant run Gears of War after install it but od the other sidebefore I instal this I has 35-45 FPS in UT3 now I have 58-62 on same settings.

  16. Geez… after browsing through the forums, I think I better stick to what I currently have and not upgrade anything.

    Hope things goes well for everyone else.

  17. I am using NVIDIA GE force 6400…eill direct X work with that card…please help me…I want to download direct x10 for xp…or i should buy another graphic card…

  18. @Manjider: You will need to follow the instructions written there. Its a hack and requires some technical activity.

  19. I downloaded the Microsoft DirectX SDK, but exactly what do I do after that???? I don’t understand, I double click on the “Tutorial12_2005.sln”, but window cannot open the file. What do I need to open it?????

  20. Bored No More

    I saw this one a few weeks back.. Didnt bother installing it as , who knows ? It might mess up the system..

  21. guys i’ve win vista n i cant use the disable hardware accelaration option in the directx diagonose tool in vista!! i open the dxdiag in the option u cant use the option to disable directx 3d /hardware acc!! my xp i can disable it but not when i upgrade to vista! how to disable the disable hardware accelaration pls help!

  22. @Karrar: This is hack which emulates directx 10 behavior to play Directx10 games. I am not sure if it can work on all cards but some of the people said it did but for which card its not sure.

    You can try with the tutorial and see if it works for you. Please backup everything before you do

  23. I just upgraded my pc. Now I use 8800gt 512mb. I am pretty satisfied with the xp and dx9. why do you guys so rush! wait a couple of months and we shall all have stable vista and dx10 games. You’re just wasting your time. all that hacking in system32 isnt worth it, believe me.

    Darko, Serbia.

  24. You MUST have a DX10 capable GPU to enjoy DX10 visuals, no matter if your games are running in a hacked version of XP or in Vista

  25. Hey can this enhance graphics of older cards.. Like i have fx5200, i can[’t play the newer games.. will this help me in anyway??

  26. Hi guys im new here and im just interested in knowing if one of this cards will be able to stand DirectX 10 Looking forward in your Help

    Ati radeon 9600 256 Mb X1050 or
    Ati Sapphiron X1650 512Mb (The card im gonna bye next Week :P)

  27. baz mccarthy

    its interesting to explore directx10 and xp but to be honest, even though i genuinely feel that the vista ui is a massive step back in user-friendliness, you can’t stop progress. get vista and leave xp behind because everyone else will eventually. anyway its all NT underneath! baz

  28. is htis whole thing even legal?
    i know im being a fuddy dutty but i really would feel better about dwnloading it if i knew it was legal.

  29. ∟Dl>1¼P4§≥.

    how do i download DX10 the link button is just basically a refresh button. where can i download it I really want to play Crysis and World in Conflict on DX10. plz

  30. Hey people i’ve got one question – did anybody download this 60 mb hacked version and test it? Is this working?

  31. One question, how can i open the tutorial12_2005.sln? it doesn´t work when i click it. Do i have to install the dxsdk_november 2007? Please i need help. I´m from Germany, i don´t can´t speek english very well :).

    What must I do now? He cannot open d3dx9 or find. Does this not function mod, nevertheless, or does the mistake lie with the program itself? What must I do? To custom urgently help! Then has opened sometimes Crysis to look whether I can put up texturen on very much, but, nevertheless, does not go, because the Prgramm to me dx10 has not played on the calculator.

    Greetz

  33. @Emiros I am not sure what those error means but do you have the directx files correctly ? Moreover try to apply the latest hack we got but please at your own riisk

  34. @ashish mohta. The direct x files I have are d3d10.dll, d3dx10, d3dx10_33, d3dx10d.dll, d3dx10d_33, dxgi.dll, Nucleus.dll and I has copied all in system32, is this right? which this files must I copy in system32, can you help me please?

  35. @emiros: Seems like you have the original files which we missed. Can you send us those files at info at technospot.net ? I will try to see it and help you out.

    Moreover we had posted about an alternative hack too Do check the download page

  36. If you need the link over again, I can give him to you, here the link is over again:

    Then all that is loaded about rapidshare. I succeed it very often tried, unfortunately, therefore, I rather wait, until you have found or other another away to crack XP put under stress lighter without big ones:).

    Is project still active then of the Alky or may not program any more in XP what concerns DX10? Has belonged that it now others take over, but whether this is right I do not know. If we hope that it somebody gets to crack XP:D. Is it also right that this minced meat functions only with Nvidia maps? I have a HD3870 of ATI.Pezzy

  37. alternative one hack 60Mb has, does not function, I have already tried: (. Can one not hack then XP differently without these DX10 files with visual studio? ` One hopes that it will still create, a lot succeed, besides:).

    Peace

  38. So the password for the files DX10 is: 5x If you of one link download I has given you, then you must download after him this passwort give around files to agree. I have forgotten the password write to like it was, but entschuldigung again:).

    Pezzy

  39. @Dl>1¼P4§≥. Look at my first post (February 24. 2008). The link i have post here are functioin. Tried it again. If you have download the files dont forget the password 5x, ok?

    Peace

  40. The link was mixed with the text along with it. Just corrected it now. Try it. I wil be working on this in a day or two if anybody else can get on this and see . Thanks

  41. @Emiros and rest of people: Try out the nrew installer I was able to find. It has pictures which proves that the installer can make directx10 work on windows xp

  42. @Emiros: I keep on hunting for this a lot, I think I found it in some forum. I cant test on my system as I have only one, the other one is with my friend. If somebody can try we can get a hit

  43. @Ashish. I have tried it. If I go under dxdiag, it registers me dx10.0, but I can put under crysis not on very high. A friend has tried assasin creed, but this play starts nobody dx10! It comes error with the text: The Prozedureinsprungspunkt “D3D10ReflectShader” what not found in the d3d10.dll. What now?

  44. @Emiros: That sucks . D3d10.dll registration is missing it seems. I will work on this thing again on weekend , there should be some way.

    Thanks for the update. :D

  45. I know. Seems in such a way, as would be only chop around the DXVersion as 10,0 look to let. We hope times whether you some more to make can. Somehow that can already still function. Inform me please, if you found something.

  46. Hello, I’ve the game Assassin’s Creed. But when I try to launch the game in Directx 10 mode, it doesn’t works, although I’ve done all the instructions.
    And I don’t understand what I’ve to do with Visual Stuido C++. And the others game I have haven’t better graphics . Does it really works ? I don’t think !!!
    How the others succeeded ?

    HELP ME PLEEEASE !!!!!!!!

  47. lukas1987dion

    Hi. When i launched assasins creed in DX10, i have this – ‘CxxFrameHandler3 in msvcrt.dll’, i have winxp HE32 sp2, and 8800gts… emiro have right, i have problem with D3D10.dll and D3D10ReflectShader, but i use D3D10.dll from emule, (size=0.98MB) and copy it to system32 works, but i have error with msvcrt.dll….

  48. Simply wait sometimes whether for Ashish something can do. Maybe he finds a way because of these mistakes? Pity that it, nevertheless, has not functioned, would have with pleasure fully funktion capable DX10 on my XP, but will still probably have to last. Peace

  49. @7up7down: Were you able to play any directx10 games on xp using this hack ? If yes tell us which one and how was the performance. Your feedback is very important

  50. I heard that u can get 20fps extra vs. vista when using this hack.

    I’ve been trying to get it to work but its nowhere explained what exactly I should do.

    1. Installed “dx10-xp.exe” the dll’s.
    2. Installed SDK.
    3. Installed Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition. Now the double click action works (get errors and don’t know what it’s supposed to accomplish). Only what next? What do I do with the Alky.zip and Philosopher.zip?

  51. Nice information however, the preveiw for alky can be found here and all the dlls including Nucleas.dll,dxgi.dll,d3dx10d.dll,d3d10.dll etc. Here is the link

  52. @eNdEmiOn: Not sure of 20fps extra but the I have added the original files again. Try do download the preview and follow the tutorial with Express Editio

  53. this is not god,I instaled this directx10 into my PC,and is succesfuly instaled,but doesnt work if I try to open any directx10 game link,only directx9 it`s opened
    someone else can play direcx10 games on direct link ( like Assassin Creed or Lost Planet extreme conditions ) ?

  54. @LVC: The guy 7up7down here on comments gave me a feed back on mail.
    Um, DirectX 10 game is like WoW? Whatever, anyways, it was VERY nice.

    Before I played WoW (using DirectX 9) it was lagging very much. Now using DirectX 10 it was ALOT better, the color, the game graphic was much better.The effects was much better like dynamic lighting and weather effect and such.

  55. what’s the pass of dx10.rar at the downloadcenter?
    And
    If I want to play assassin’s creed in dx10, I also get the CxxFramehandler3 error in msvcrt.dll… I hoped i found an solution in dx10.rar but its protected by a password… PLEASE HELP ME!

  56. well I see that there isn’t a msvcrt.dll in the dll map… AND my problem was with that dll… Mayby you can upload your version of msvcrt.dll so I can try it with your version?

  57. I keep trying to run that C++ thing. I go to start without debugging and every time it tells me 1>c:\program files\microsoft directx sdk (march 2008)\samples\c++\dxut\core\dxut.h(93) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: ‘d3dx9.h’: No such file or directory. What am I doing wrong?

  58. Stuff dx10 for Windows XP.. i upgraded to Vista 2 months ago, and it craps all over XP. whoever told you it was too unstable needs their heads read. I have had no problems whatso ever, and O, i enjoy DX10 games mmmmmmmmmm Dump XP and just get Vista, problems solved.

  59. Update

    1. Installed “dx10-xp.exe” the dll’s also tried the other set of dll’s.
    2. Installed SDK.
    3. Installed Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition. Now the double click action works (get errors just like the guy who posted his error log above and don’t know what it’s supposed to accomplish). Only what next? What do I do with the Alky.zip and Philosopher.zip? <- still don’t know what to do with those files.

    I should mention in dxdiag it says DX10 installed. Games wont do anything with it as far as I can tell. I guess my DX9 card just wont do it because when I use the Crysis mod the game automatically reverts to the last settings. Half life 2 says Software DX10 and hardware DX9 but I don’t see any difference in game.
    I think I will try again when my 8800GT gets in (should be today). Otherwise I’ll install a vista in dual boot but my experiences with vista have been bad (mostly unstable). And all the tweaking I have to do before it will run smoothly, not looking forward to that (I don’t care for all the n00b crap they put in it).

  60. I i’m trying to run Assassin’s Creed on dx 10 exe but always shows this dialog:
    “The procedure entry point D3D10ReflectShader could not be located in the dynamic link library d3d10.dll”
    what should i do please help

  61. There nothing is to be done! In addition, no difference if is there you Assassins Creed on Dx 9 or DX10 wants to gamble! Under DX10 it should run faster, but this does not tune it because I under Vista has tried, but under XP it runs much faster! Therefore, it is no matter whether you the play on DX9 or DX10 gambles!

  62. @EmiroS:

    u r from germany, right? maybe u can tell me ur last comment in german!
    because i don’t habe any idea what u r talking about!

    greets canyamo

    and a second questin @ all.
    is anybody able to play DX10 Games on XP yet? but not with DirectX 9.0c of course…

  63. directx 10 just doesent work on xp i have tried a lot of games it doesent work always shows D3DReflectshader doesent found in d3d10.dll library, i think it is imposible directx 10 to work on xp because it is vista only ,so i give up from trying to run any game on xp with directx 10 there’s just no way

  64. Ofcourse it’s possible. The microsoft guys just don’t want to enable people to keep using XP there is no profit in it.

    There is even a simple mod to get the DX10 graphics in crysis whitout having to have DX10. Well ofcource the performance with DX10 would be a bit better but those sort of things can be adapted.

    Keep in mind that in the virtual world there is no limitation except the limitaton of your imagination.

    BTW I said that I would try things with my new DX10 card but I had to return it because it just wasn’t running stable.

  65. Ok, enough with the alphas and the crashes.

    Here’s a 100% reliable way that I used to run DirectX10 based applications/games on my PC.

    (Assuming you already have Windows XP x86)
    1. Install Windows Vista x86(Any Version, evaluation/OEM/unoffical ones work too) on an empty partition.

    2. Start Vista. Then install the games or applications using the SAME “Program Files” directory that of Vista.

    3. Restart and run Windows XP x86.

    4. Go to the “Program Files” directory that of Vista and run your exe.

    See for your self =)

    It worked for me and I was like WOW! Microsoft are screwed :p

    this is not me i just read it in article
    i have super pc with water cooler 8600 gt and 2 gb ram still i hate vista it make my games slower
    will i will wait till i try the visual studio for example thingy i hope its work i copy all things still getting error reflect shadow is missing

  66. How the hell do I uninstall this? I can’t play any games now because of this!!! if you can help me uninstall it or revert back to 9.0c. I accidently deleted my restore point~!

  67. Just finished burning the iso.
    Will be installing and testing shortly.

    The uploader said it works but that is confirmed by him and not me.

    The worst you could do is try it.

  68. @The Bomb: Great, If you get it successfully done will be great. We triued the installer once and some said it did not work. Now if your version can work then it will be great!!!

  69. mr Ashish
    i want ur help. apparently i dowloaded the sdk file(442mb) as well as the dx10.rar(4mb). when i tried to open dx10.rar file it prompted for a password without which it wont open. Help me…!. Also could u send me an email giving the steps to do this. apparently i am confused due to the mess above on this page. Also could u tell me am i doing the right thing?

  70. The passqword is dx5. As a word of caution some people said games did not work and some said they were able toplay the games but not dx10 games so use it with caution

    help :/

  72. I also tried and my computer says “C:\Program Files\…..\Tutorial12_2005.vcproj’ is not installed”. How…………….?

  73. Umm….i downloaded Visual Studios Express Edition C++, and then downloaded and extracted the files. when i downloaded DirectX SDK and explored the files, there’s no samples folder. it just goes C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A. and under that there are the files Lib, bin, and Include. i looked in them but could not find a “samples” file anywhere. what did i do wrong?????

  74. I need help after i install dx10xp dxdiag shows this:

    Several Files (ddraw.dll, d3d8thk.dll, dsound3d.dll, etc.) are old versions, which could cause problems.

    ive tried bioshock and crysis. crysis cant run on very high and bioshock now refuses to run (it was just fine the night before). can any of you please help me.

    thanks in advance

  75. This will not work, DX10 needs Vista to run. Im not a vista guy, and i have XP, but just wait… soon Microsoft will crack, and release an update for XP users to run DX10. Don’t waste your time with this, as it will just bugger up your DX.

  76. to Earthbound:
    It seems that Bioshock can’t run with Alky projects DX10 files. So all you need to do, is remove the files you installed (d3d10.dll, d3dx10.dll, d3dx10.dll, dxgi.dll, and Nucleus.dll) from windows/system32 folder and Bioshock will run again. Don’t know how to make it accept these files though.

  77. can someone answer my question PLEASE?!?!

    to 10010101,
    it’s obviously working for some people. so we can try, as long as we know how to fix it if it doesn’t work. (like me)

  79. Hey, i installed it manually by putting in the dll by itself and no luck :( My video Card Driver still says i have dx9c. I am going to try the installer but if it doesnt work and screws with my games, how would i uninstall???

  80. @ rad15
    backup ur computer first, with acronis true image or something like that! If something doesn’t work anymore after the install, just restore ur data!

  81. this does not work :( it shows up as directx 10 in dxdiag but directx 9 does not work at all anymore! tried everything, cant even uninstall this thing. tried deleting all the dll’s still nothing. help!

  82. if you’re having problems, you most likely skipped a step in the instructions. as for those vista fanboys, here’s a fact: Vista is ONLY good on pre-built system (i.e. Dell, IBM, HP, etc) why? because these are thoroughly tested to make sure every aspect works. guess what? i’ve got 2 custom built computers, both of them have serious issues that does not allow me to use vista as a reasonable operating system. also, if you are a true computer person, you would not bother with it. vista is crap. stated in every single review of it that i know it.

    XP is solid, fixed, beautiful. XP works. vista usually does not unless it’s a pre-built piece of crap.

  83. We have updated this post with new DirectX 10 RC2 Fix 1 – a patch to increase the compatibility of new games and programs with Windows XP. And also corrects errors with the launch of games requiring files with DirectX 9.0 and earlier versions of it. Download it from out download link and give it a try.

    Any feedback will be appreciated and Please backup before trying anything .

  84. hey sweet deal it says i have directx 10. But in games like World in Confilct and Crysis i dont have the option of directx10 :( I even have a Dx10 card, 8800gts. So i dunno. So far no problems with games i hope :) Wouldnt it also be easier to create an uninstaller?????

  85. You find and select all the files in system32

    d3d10.dll
    d3dx10_33.dll
    d3dx10d_33.dll
    Nucleus.dll
    d3dx10.dll
    d3dx10d.dll
    dxgi.dll

    and you DELETE THEM all to HELL!

  86. Same problem as Rad15 and some other guy, gives me an error with D3D10ReflectShader, tried 4 different dlls from org. vista and so on. Still no go. Bleh, was rly hoping for this!

  87. Ascended Yoda

    Hey guys….

    i downloaded the dx10 installer but i got the dll’s from katz.cd but they seemed to do the same. The dxdiag shows that ive got dx10 but i dont no what all this dx10 sdk stuff is all about….do i need it for it to work properly. In CS:S it reads that the system is running dx10 but when i run Crysis I cant set the graphics to ‘very high’.

    Ive got an 8800GTS 512

  88. how can i uninstall this directx10 RC2 FIX1? coz i got problem playing some games..n also got problem when try to play 3planesoft Screensaver..ive tried to install directx9c, but still got the problem..when i run dxdiag, the directx version still Directx10.0 (4.10.0000.31)..can some tell me how to solve this problem without reinstall my XP? thx

  89. i’m trying out assassin’s creed on my XP.. tried the “copy dll’s to system 32″ thing and an error showed up saying that The procedure entry point d3d10reflectshader could not be found on the located in the dynamic link library d3d10.dll .. PLEASE HELP ME!! I REALLY NEED THE HELP!! PLEASE!!

  90. This rant is totally bogus!
    The is no such thing as a DX10 patch/hack working on Windows XP.
    Do not believe these idiots.

    At best, all this hack will do, is modify the name in DXdiagnostics to read DX10 instead of DX9/9c

    At worst, this crap will totally mess up your DX configuration, and prevent games and multimedia from working all together.

    Do not mess with this, unless you’re ready to face massive BSODs….

    Anyways.. forget about DX10. Its pure marketing BS to trick users into jumping into a slow and buggy OS (vista), and hence “upgrading” with expensive hardware to get it to run at speeds you already were getting with your old hardware on XP. Its all money people.

    The real visual difference between DX9 and DX10 is totally questionable, yet the performance hit is huge.

    DX10 only games you say?? Bollocks! It has been proven that even if a game is “DX10 vista only” (Halo 2 / Shadowrun anyone?) with simple modifications they can run perfectly on XP. (I have them both running) Crysis Ultra settings are only for Vista and DX10??? Hell no! A simple editing of an .ini file unlocks the ultra setting, and guess what? It looks and runs better then Vista/DX10! Look it up people!

    BTW, Assassin’s Creed runs flawless on Windows XP. No need to install anything. And worry not, game companies are not about to start making “Vista only games”. This would mean a huge loss of profit, because they would be targeting only a fraction of their target market.

  91. great post, sandman!

    could you tell me which ini. file i have to edit to get “very high” in crysis!? i’d really like to have it!
    maybe you can send me the ini file!

    i could give u my mail address! but i dont want to make it public…

  92. @Sandman: Interesting. If thats the case we would like to know what the settings are.this hacked has worked for one of my friend and he still plays both the games. But seeing your claim we would like to see more.

  93. This OLD myth. Even ALKY agreed this project failed, and directx10 can;t run on XP (although they did change the registry to make it read directx10 – thats about all they achieved)

    http://alkyproject.blogspot.com/

    It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Falling Leaf Systems, LLC. We set out over a year ago to provide users of both “old and unsupported” as well as “alternative” Operating Systems the ability to run the latest games for the PC. Unfortunately, Falling Leaf Systems was unable to achieve that goal.

    However, every ending tends to open another door for opportunity and though we are saddened to announce our departure, we are almost as excited to announce the immediate availability of ALL source code for the Alky Project! It is licensed under the LGPL and includes both the orginal Alky Converter source used to convert the popular Prey Demo to run on OSX and Linux, as well as the alpha release of the Alky Compatibility Libraries which attempted to provide a DirectX10 compatible runtime for Windows XP

  94. This Crysis tweak has been around for some time now.
    Its quite simple guys.

    You just have to edit a few .cfg files inside the CVarGroups folder (back up first tho’)

    Chech out this link for a How-to:

    With this tweak, you “convert” the High settings, into the “very high/ultra” settings previously only accesible with vista.

    When its done, every “DX10″ effect is present and the game runs much smoother then it does in vista (about 20fps faster in my case).

    You get the whole deal: Motion blur, Depth of field, the so-called god-rays, every single “dx10 only” effect is active, and running perfectly on DX9 Windows XP.

    This is another kick in the teeth for Microsoft, prooving once more that “Dx10 only” is just a bunch marketing hype to push and trick gamers into buying Vista; an inneficient and power hungry OS which at the same time will obligate you to buy more and faster ram, as well as a faster processor and bigger PSU, in order to make it run at an acceptable speed. Its one big business triangle. Dx10-Vista-Hardware. Can’t you see how its all connected?

  95. helluva job!

    it works perfectly for me! i’m now playing cryisis on 1280×960, 4xAA, and all details set to so called “very high”! Fraps shows me 15 fps, but the game doesnt stuck (is this the right word? i hope u understand…) anymore. got all the beautiful effects. furthermore the water looks awesome!

    thanks, sandman!

  96. I have DX10 working in XP and all my games are working. I am using the russian install file and it works perfect. Even when I run DXDIAG it says dx10

  97. No problem mates..
    Glad I could shed a little light on this issue.

    Remember: There is no “Dx10 only” game currently available. The 2 pathetic attempts by microsoft were Halo 2 and Shadowrun, both of which run flawlessly on XP with minor modification. (Upon closer look, it was found out, that both of these games actually run on Dx9 programming. All they had was a “lock protection” preventing them to install if Dx10 was nos present in the registry)

    The whole deal with Crysis Very high settings, was a business deal between the Crytek team and Microsoft, in which MS offered a big cash settlement to Crytek if they would agree to “lock out” the very high settings under Windows XP.

    Thank God for Intelligent Hackers who have brough this into the light. Somebody should really sue Microsoft for these practices of Bribery and corporate corruption. I guess nobody is brave (or dumb?) enough to tackle a Monopoly like Microsoft.

    Other games which offer a “Dx10 mode” like World in Conflict and Company of Heroes expansion, prove that the visual diferences are totally neglectible. They are hardly noticable. Definitely nothing Dx9 can’t currently do. Yet, they do strike a very noticeable performance hit in games, due to Vista sucking in much more resourses then XP.

    I’m 100% sure there is currently nothing Dx10 can do, that Dx9 can’t replicate. No new graphic technology has come out to justify the existance of Dx10, much less “Dx10 only” software.

    I’m not saying that Dx10 will never take off and actually start offering significant graphic advances and performance enhancements over Dx9 (I really hope it does), but it has been almost 2 years since the release of Vista and dx10, yet we have seen NOTHING to justify an upgrade. All we have seen and experienced with Vista are lower performances, hardware and software incompatibility and overall inestability.

    Microsoft should get their act together and offer a new OS that is actually an “Upgrade” from our current OS. Something that is more resource efficient, more stable, and offers significant advantages over older OSes. What pisses me off is that instead of doing this, they try to Force users into changing by willingly disabling features in games and software, so that they will not function anymore in XP.

  98. When I buy a product like XP I expect to be always able to use it. Microsoft is involved in some disgusting business practices that betrays their XP customers. We should all protest! Make websites exposing the fact.

  99. About this so called “msvcrt.dll” I have heard that replacing the original dx9 file (the one that lives in C:\windows\system32\) with the Vista dx10 version (along with a bunch of other files too) will supposedly make Dx10 run on XP.

    I have NOT validated if this is true or not, but a “DX10_XP.EXE” installer does exist.

    Here you can read about what this hack supposedly does, and what games are tested and running fine with it.

    As I said before, I have not yet tested this. I will do so, but in about a month, before I do fresh install of XP.

    If anyone gets a chance to try it, please post the results here.

  100. help how dow i get dx10 on my pc i have searched almost every website but it ither doesent want to download or it does not wnt toinstall or just cant fiend it plz help

  101. “To Crysis worked at Very High settings need to do the following steps:

    1. In folder BIN find two files, CryRenderD3D9.dll and CryRenderD3D10.dll
    2. Their names have changed between them.
    3. Then create a shortcut to the file Crysis.exe
    4. In its properties (right click -> Properties), where “Object” in the end, add “_DX10″
    5. Or, if paragraph 4 failed, then write “_-DX10″
    6. Also possible option without space, it all depends on the version

    P.S. Write without quotes and the “_” substitute for a space!”

    i dont get the paragraph where it says: “in its properties, where object in the end, add _DX10″

    what does that mean? can’t find “object”, or do i get it wrong? i’m from austria…

    plz help

  102. canyamo:

    What this very rough translation (originally in Russian) is trying to say;

    1. In the BIN folder look up both files CryRenderD3D9.dll and CryRenderD3D10.dll

    2. Rename them, switching names between them.

    3. Then go to your Crysis shortcut on the desktop and right click properties.

    4. Add the shortcut “_DX10″ at the end (without quotes).

    For example:
    “C:\Crysis\Bin32\Crysis.exe” _DX10

    Anyways, this is only supposed to work if you already installed the DX10 hack provided on that website. I already tried it without the hack, and I get an error, asking for a missing Dx10 file. This indicates that this shortcut SHOULD work, since it immediately searches for Dx10 files upon startup.

    Again, I have not tried that Dx10 Hack yet, but I strongly recommend you do a nice and clean system restore backup before trying it.

    Cheers!

  103. thx!

    it’s clear with your translation!

    i know that i need dx10 first, but i just wanted to understand all completely. i’m going to install (or try to install…) dx10 tomorrow.

    i’ll keep you briefed!

  104. hey, i just installed DX10 on my Windows XP Professional SP3! i downloaded the .exe from leechmods and installed it. no problems, dxdiag shows me DirectX 10…
    so, then i tried to get the very high settings in crysis.
    first, as sandman said, u have to change the names of the two files (switch their names).
    then open the properties of your crysis.exe shortcut on your desktop. in the tab “shortcut” you have to change (for example):
    “C:\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32\Crysis.exe”
    to
    “C:\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32\Crysis.exe” -DX10
    (its the link in “target”)
    this is what u have to do, if u use the crysis patch 1.2! and there IS a space before the -DX10
    if that doesnt work try it with a underscore (instead of the hyphen) or without a space… just try!

    i hope everybody understands that!

  105. does anyone know the minimum video card requirements to use dx 10? i have a geforce fx5200. it is a 128 mb card. i HAVE a fx5500 too, it is 256mb, but it is in my second pc. can i use the 128?

  106. i don’t know about you guys but all i did was download the dll files and put them into windows/system32 folder and then downloaded the direct x SDK program and i got direct x10 sucessfully for xp. I’m not joking. It was very easy and it worked on the first try. I don’t know if you have xp professional and if that makes a difference? But i got it to work for xp professional with SP3. Im able to play “The Witcher” with the same amount of graphics as on vista. The only drawback is that it seems to run a little slower but for direct x10 to work for xp, i guess i can deal with that little of a con. So just download the dll files into system32 folder and then download direct x SDK and it should work. Maybe I’m just lucky. Otherwise everyone be cool.

  107. Tried it, it worked on Crysis but it game shows 15fps.
    I also messed up my files with The Sims 2. I want The Sims 2 to work with DX10. So I explore and tweak a bit in the registry and program files folder. Trial and error though.

    I know The Sims 2 doesn’t run on DX10, but I wanna know.

  109. Ashish Mohta pls do help me.. im having hard times on how to install directx 10 in xp.. i dont know what to do on this site Using Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition with the Microsoft Platform SDK

    after i go there then what? and can you pls post the links where can i download the dll files.. im having hard times on finding them especially d3dx10.dll

    PLSS DO HELP ME.

  110. I need an honest answer. I know that dx10 looks GREAT, but will it run slower if I use it? I mean usually in games the maximum is dx9.0c for XP, but if I crank it up another digit, will it make the games that support dx10, and the games that don’t, lag? Great hack! =D But please be honest, I don’t want every game I own lagging =P

  111. Yo i downloaded this thing and it needs a website or somethin to open it it says it can not be found how do i fix that i would love to play my games in directx10 so plz respond to me

  115. just wanted to expres my respect to the wizzkid who pulled of the first steps to bringing dx10 to xp realy exelllent but i have a problem with gears of war after installing the game it will start but crash back to desktop with an error of some sort any solutions to that?,same with universe at war too again if any sugestions on fixing these issues i’d be realy realy greatfull

  116. No its not giving me the url hold on here for a sec let me put it up if i can………….

    Windows cannot open this file:
    File: DX-10.-xp.rar

    To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online to look it up automaticlly, or you can manually select from a list of programs on your computer.

    What do you you want to do?
    1. Use the web service to find the aprropriate program
    2. select the program from a list

  117. Well i need some imformations.. i am going to try win xp pro x64 on my new pc my card is nvidia gtx280 vendor is gigabyte and it complete suport dx 10 ..
    my questions are..
    1) does it run on xp x64 bit os?
    2) it will have the same results with graphic quality as like vista dx 10??
    3) how to set up it i just need to run the “DirectX 10 RC2 Fix 3 ” or i need to do something more like install older versions first?

    after all i want to thnx you for trying to do this this is very nice work..

  118. @asvestomix There is no guarantee that it would work on 64 Bit . For some people it had worked like a charm for some people it didnt work at all on a 32 bit system. So make youre you backup your windows using system restore and then use it.

  119. Okay.. thnx you i will try it.
    btw you answer me realy fast. This site has a realy good service and the answers comes realy fast!!!

  121. hey… do i have to reinstall my games (e.x. Crysis or Assassins Creed} to play it with the dx10 hack? or just start the dx10 exe?

  122. when i tried to run AssassinsCreed_Dx10, it was an error.it said that application hadn’t been initiated rightly.

  123. Carlos Sampaio

    Hi there.. I installed these dll’s for about 2 months now.. No visible changes on the game I used to play.. in crisys I can’y get “Very High” settings option.. AND.. I can’t play FIFA 09! The start menu keeps black and I can only see the mouse cursor..
    Question.. how do I uninstall this DX? I’ve installed DX9c on top of this one and I keep seing DirectX Version 10.0!!!
    THanks for any help!

  124. the windows xp dx10 hack works great. some games… if it doesn’t come up the dx10 options like example FarCry 2, you will need to edit the gamerprofile.xml file inorder to set dx10 mode.

    this is due to the fact that the machine is still running windows xp and that the game reckognizes it as dx9.0c rather than dx10 (unfortunately dumb), but just required patience and persistence.

    dx10 improves the way games operate, by allowing most higher end graphics cards to utilize all the rendering and processing power they possess. Improves the PhysX engine, slightly better rendering and a generally higher FPS rate.

    Vista isn’t too bad. just resource hungry. what we need is vista looks and XP functionality =)

    even though my pc is decent enough. still slows down…

    specs:

    Intel Q6600 running at 3.4GHz OC
    Kingston Hyper X ddr2 800 2x1GB, Timing 4-4-4-12
    Nvidia 9600GT OC to 735/970/1855
    200GB seagate HDD
    2xPioneer 216BK DL burners
    TT 430NP-A2 PSU Module
    (Standard Air Cooling)

  125. I don’t see why ppl hate vista so much, I mean since sp1 it flows like a deam. If you don’t want all the fancy effects or want to save some resources just turn everything off like in xp. You may need to go through a few menues to find the right one but it’s no problem at all.

    Anyways, I’m glad some are developing this dx10 for xp, though it seems to be far from perfect atm. I whish I myself had xp now and tested it, it would sure be fun.

    Well well, get over xp guys, vista is atleast as good as xp and it is much much more safer to use aswell. Cheers!

  126. jukka muhonen

    hmm. ive seen fix 3 somewhere, but here is only fix 1.

    Do i need to download dx10 exe or only that fix? and is directx sdk still required? i dont need to use that anymore?

  127. Ok, I put the files in the system32 directory and I did all the other steps, but with what should I open “Tutorial12_2005.sln”? It asks for a program to open it with.

  128. I did not tested this version that you have here but i downloaded it from here http://depositfiles.com/en/files/5636758 and it is working.

    My system configuration is next: Intel Dual Core E8500 @4Ghz, 4Gb Ram DDR2 1100Mhz, 640Gb HDD and GeForce 9800GT 1Gb 256-bit.

    I could have vista without problem but the point is i like much more windows xp. And so far as I heard about vista it doesnt support all 32-bit programs like Windows xp does.

    Since many people had problems playing games on vista I decided to stick with Windows xp until Windows 7 does not come out.

  129. Ok i got the directx10 installed (or so says my dxdiagn). Now i tried to download SDK but every time i click the buttons to get the plug in it tries to go to another URL but says i cannot connect to it. Is the SDK really needed? Or do i really have directx10 like dxdiagn says.

  130. hey i have a problem
    i wonted start devil may cry4 but when i wont start it
    there stand:_CxxFrameHandler3 was not found in “msvcrt.dll”
    can you help me? thx
    (i’m german)

  131. New to this Directx 10 for XP thing, but since there is really no list of games the take full potential of the DX10 hack for XP, I wanted to know does this patch work on a game-to-game basis?

    For example I have been trying to get max settings for Opposing Fronts, but the only options that I can’t reach the max for is shader setting (directx3d) and terrain detail (ultra). Only hypothesis is that the game isn’t detecting directx10. I am on XP x64 and have installed the KM software DirectX10 patch (x64 bit support) with the all the RC fixes.

  132. I have installed DirectX 10 on Windows XP, but it did not make a discernable difference playing GTA 4. Also, some older games will no longer play, so I want to uninstall it. I have tried deleting the files from system32, but they keep respawning. How do I unistall DirectX 10?

  133. for windows xp 64bit 64bit processes dont pick up the dx10 eg dxdiag 64bit but the 32bit dxdiag does, should i put the dlls into sysWOW64 too?

  134. where is the download..
    directx 10 i want to download directx 10 for xp or for vista

    fallingleafsystems..i cant go on the page it showing sm error..can i hav the link Plz.!

  135. I was not able to uninstall dx10, as I had no prior restore points. Luckily, my old game is working now, even though the dx files were not recognised, BUT, learn from my mistake and be sure to create a restore point before installing this on your pc.

    Hello
    well I tried the install and copied the dll files and installed crack3 version.
    now I’m using FSX mainly on my pc .
    My system was running on directx 9 with FSX then I tried this crack yesterday and was still able to play FSX. Only thing is I can’t really notice a difference. In the options for FSX the DX10 is not showing so I am not sure if DX10 is activated or not in FSX.
    I did notice that the game is alittle faster and I maxed out the sliders for terrain leaving the autogen and other slider for scenery at normal, using at dense or more then it started to get choppy.
    I copied and pasted my specs for you though if you notice the DX setup parameters not found I don’t know what that means.
    once DX10 for xp installed was I to reinstall FSX or other games for the games to switch to DX10, or does it do it automatacally?
    Thank you

  137. I have Garry’s Mod, and i cant get it to run as smoothly as i want…i have a dual core AMD x2, 3gb of ram, Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT, and DirectX 9. Should i get 10? I am also using xp and have had no problems to speak of and i want the very best for the HP that i have…any suggestions, or updates/upgrades i should get, please dont hesitate. this is my email.

    • If you have all games working and with good performance then dont use this. This is only required if you really need Directx 10 support on Xp and Run DX10 games on XP

  138. Thx, It worked! I can tell the difference in crysis warhead even. Wait so does this mean I can play halo 2 and other vista exclusives on my pc now without using some kind of hack (I have Windows XP SP3 btw)

    • It might work , give it a try. Most of the people it had worked but many said no also. So just give it a try and see Halo2 works on Windows Xp with this directx10 hacks

  139. @Sandman

    dx10 is a myth? dx10 doesn’t exist? you may want to read the spec sheets on some NEW video cards and the “Recomended” hardware config on the side of the game box (DX10 is noted many times in both places). I think you need to sit down now. Geez. you’re both right and wrong at the same time on the dx10 thing, but you are way out in left field with the “whole “Triangle of Power” you described. These 3 industries drive each other you dolt! If it weren’t for that driving force we wouldn’t be playing games like Crysis on the monster machines we have today.

    Also, ifyou havent tried it yourself, please, for gods sake, don’t comment. you just sound like an id10t. These people are having fun breaking down these “myths” about what can and can’t be done in dx9 vs. dx10. I friggin’ hate Vista. This is the single most bloated piece of shakey, quakey, crashy, crap Microloss has ever put out. Vista is key to the “Great Dumbing Down of America”. Where else can a company as large and public as Microsoft, continue to sell known defective products to its customers and NOT go out of business? It’s due to them having absolutly NO fears of losing its customers! Only in America! Billy boy knows that if enough people started really pushing the issue, that all he has to do is change the color scheme of Windows and the masses are soothed for a while longer.

    these people are helping keep these industries straight and playing fairly with us. Don’t discourage them, you sound like a bully.

    Go hackers, run free!

    I’ll cover your escape and hold off the conspiracy theorists. Remember to serpentine!!!!

  140. I just wanted to say. It isn’t very much a good idea to mess around with the system files. The computer will automatcally make a restore point but I think the hack is great. I can play far cry 2 with a 10 fps gain. 4 the other games… fuk em. But that’s just my word.

  141. Thanx it worked.,
    But after i install directX 10 for xp, my computer can`t support havok behavior 1.6.0.. Why??

  142. Nope, halo 2 with the DX10 hack doesnt work. I decided to go to best buy and pick up a copy and when I got home I got this error “The procedure entry point RegGetValueA could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll” Microsoft did something to that dll that even if i downloaded that one from vista, it still wouldnt work. Ashish Mohta, if there is a way, can you find a hack for this, or prompt the Alky project to make a hack for this.

  143. sniperwiper

    Just installed DX10 on XPsp3 and it works….FS2004 FPS are up for sure…FSX i havent really noticed any difference, i will try again, there is no option to enable DX10 preview mode.I have not rebooted yet so maybe it will enable it. Crysis Warhead i have not tried yet. Gears of War seems smoother. Dead space i aint noticed any difference.

  144. sniperwiper

    :::::::UPDATE:::::::

    FSX = Smoother( i think )
    FS2004 = Deffinately see an increase in FPS…..:D
    Dead Space = Smoother( i think )
    Armed Assault = Smoother :)
    Crysis Warware = Smoother :)
    BattleField 2 = crashes.
    CounterStrike:Source – Crashing. Graphics display problems at startup.
    Gears Of War = Smoother( i think )
    TsetDriveUnlimited = smoother.

    As you can see from my experience i don`t know if its just me but some games do run alot smoother. But…and a big BUT CSS and BF2 crashing…..:(
    Me thinks i need to uninstall and im actually looking at the uninstall in the control panel and the size is a WHOPPING 1.176.00MB WTF……

  145. sniperwiper

    Uninstalled but it is still showing DX10 when i run dxdiag, even though ive installed the latest version of DX9.
    Any help would be appriciated in howto get DX9 back.

    Oh by the way CSS is working BF2 still crashes.

  146. NRCTHEGREAT

    DX10 has made my computer not run about half of my old games. How the hell do you uninstall this? I need answers quick please.

  147. You should check the hyperlink given in the artical first then say or comment any thing else the download link is given in the articalYou should check the hyperlink given in the artical first then say or comment any thing else the download link is given in the artical

  148. i got inno3d 8500GT 1024mb 128 bit.. and i’ve downloaded the russian version of direct x10 for windows xp.. well it worked for me… dxdiag == directx10.. but i still got 1 problem though.. running warcraft3 the frozen throne DOTA.. whenever i played the game the graphics break.. 1 solution i found is to alt+tab.. whenever the graphics starting to break i alt+tab (return to desktop) then click to warcraft again and the graphics return to normal… so im thinking that my monitor (giant optics, old) have compatibility issue with my new videocard… maybe i need to buy a new monitor with higher refresh rate… ^_^

  149. дарова народ поможите скачать директ 10-тый….скиньте ссылку…..

    hi everyone, could u guys help me out, with one little problem……
    i serch’t all over the inet but didnt find correctly working link….
    that’s all 4 now…

  150. When i installed DX10 RC2, my Mirrors Edge doestn work anymore, downloaded fix3 and still doesnt work. I did restart my computer after every step, so there shouldnt be a problem, but if u can say, wich files will be replaced during the install, so i could copy them off some other computer, if there isnt any reversing package, cuz i rlyrly wanna play mirrors edge

  151. how do i download DX10? i always go to that website but it says error 404 and i wnt to play my CRYSIS game =(

  152. Just wondering if any of this is still pertinent? It seems that the Alky project ended some time ago. Is someone else running it now?

    Also, after reading ALL of this, I am wondering, has anyone bothered to just put together everything that is needed, including all the upgrades already done, and packaged it all along with detailed instructions so that anyone wishing to use DX10 on XP can just get one file, and make it work???

    Some of this had my head spinning….and I am an engineer…I deal with complicated crap like this every day…but am at a loss why in all of this discussion and here is where, there is where you get this…that, read this, check that…..someone wouldn’t just put it all together in one nice package for the rest of us….

    Just curious… I just bought a nice 10x card but will never use Vista..but would love to have my FSX run on my XP with the graphics it has in Vista…

    - Greg

  153. Of course, maybe that is exactly what the file above my post is…LOL However, I was going to install it, but a bit leary since there are NO docs with it at all.. Will it kill my system if I don’t have my dx10 card installed yet? Anything I need to do before installing? Is there a way to reverse the install? ETc…. that info would be very helpful before I install…

    Thanks!

    Greg

    • @Greg : It can be tricky and we did not find any way to uninstall except that you can create a restore point which can be used if this creates a problem on your computer. For some it has worked like charm ( you can check forum thread ) and for some its been crap.

  154. Hi,

    I have just tryed to run “stormrise”, a game which is only supposed to be for Windows Vista in my pc( a Windows xp), but haven´t worked even if i have download all files given above. I have a nvidia gforce 9600 gt.

    Theorically could i run that game in a windox xp using this files? In my pc atributtes it says i have got Dx 10.0 working on, so i´m just a bit lost :s.

  155. installed it and ran dxdiag which shows me i have directx 10.0, but when i run run 64bit dxdiag it still shows i got 9.0c? :/
    using xp 64bit os, installing this didn’t affect any games

  156. Hello,
    I’ve installed this pack and, despite the DX10 version of the game I wanted to play still not working. Now I also have a problem with MSN which gives me a “_except_handler4_common” library error on msvcrt.dll.

    I’d like to know how I can uninstall your pack so I can install directx 9.0c again and fix this since this hack obviously doesn’t work.

    Thnx!

  157. hello! If DirectX 10 doesn’t work with your computer, it simply means that your graphics card does not support DirectX 10. I think nVidia GF 8 series only supports upto DirectX 9.0 only. GF 9 series does.

  158. Works with most of my games, and I definitely saw an improvement.

    Assassin’s Creed is thus far the only game in which I experience no difference. It won’t run in DX10 mode, and I’ve gotten the above-mentioned msvcrt.dll error as well as another one that states that the application failed to launch properly. I’ve about given up on trying, unless someone actually has a solution?

    Otherwise, though, this works.

  159. Hey there, I installed the DX10 setup and it seems to be installed. I haven’t tried any games yet though, but I’m getting some errors when I launch Windows Live Messenger. And I read that a lot of other people have gotten the dll file mailed to them, so could you mail it to me as well? msvcrt.dll

    If you can’t see my email it’s zoltanthesorceress”at”yahoo”dot”com

  160. Dear Ashish I’ve installed the fix, and then the directx sdk from microsoft… now, I cannot enable directx 10 option in gears of war also if it seems that directx 10 work well because of better images and movements’ definition, I note.

    So is there something else I can do that I miss!?

    command, operation, installation or re-installation of drivers!?

    hearing music appear better than directx 9.0 c… with sounds more defined

    Thanks, Morris.

  161. I think to have had succes in the installation of directx 10 on my OS windows xp… also if I cannot enable them in gears of war but perhaps they work without enablling.

  162. the DLL are present into the system32 folder as described… all seems operative. I hope at least :D.

  163. The fix 3 are the amazing solution for all my games :D thanks Ashish.

    this library are applied without disclimer or authorization but only verifing what effects can run them. so this artifice can work to all game indipendently by data of production…

    I have noted by unigine test 1.0 their actions and it’s amazing.

    Great work!

  164. Hi, I would like to uninstall directx10 for windows xp, so I tried to delete:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3d10.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3dx10.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3dx10_33.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3dx10d.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3dx10d_33.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxgi.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\Nucleus.dll

    However, i only have C:\WINDOWS\system32\d3dx10_33.dll, not the other ones.. help, please!

  165. @ NICLAS

    I have alla that file… in SYSTEM32 folder

    eventually you haven’t rightly installed the directx 10 emulators. So you have only that file…

  166. Hi Dear xcellent work. It works nice on my new P5Q-VM Asus mobo.
    Can you please tell me if it can be pre integrated with WinXP?
    thanx

  167. Hey, I didn’t download DX10 here, I found another one here: After I got it I just installed it. That’s it. It works perfectly on my hacked XP SP3. The DXDIAG shows DX10 installed, the visual performance in my games is quite noticeable: in Code of Honor 3, for instance, the visuals look much greater! I’ve seen the smoke and vapour that I didn’t see before! I think it’s working. Oh, yaeh, my GPU is GeForce 9600GT.

  168. DirectX10 for Microsoft Windows XP all versions! Within 2 years we have searched for the method of binding DirectX10 to Windows XP, and came close to solving the problem running any DX10 of compatible programs. At this time we succeeded in increasing the speed and quality graphics in games! At the moment included are 3 different versions for different needs. In the current version of the updated preset GameFix new.

    What’s New:
    Version AVF – 16.10.2009
    [!] Fixed false positives antivirus
    [!] Added and updated library of the October version of DirectX
    [+] Added a patch for STALKER ERs (10 patch) and Call of Pripyat
    [+] Updated version of an installer to 5.3.4
    [-] Folder Game Fix moved to a separate file

    The direct x 10 AVF (Anti-Virus Fix) has been re-made by a good friend of mine.. and made it into a silent install..
    now it installs as normal.. but now copy’s the important dx 10 & dx 11 files straight into system32 silently all in one go..

  169. sorry, i’m dont know much about video cards…What is the requirement for DirectX 10 RC 2 Pre Fix 3 ?
    but my pc have Geforce 6600Gt, (updated latest driver) , Windows XP SP2, can my PC support this patch? If errors happen, how do I uninstall it?

  170. Sinisa, Serbia

    I did it on my Lenovo notebook, and it didn’t improve anything, except few more frames per second.

    I wish Vista is not so stupid, disappointing shit, with more makeup than functionality, and with more hardware demands for less job done. It will do much more than XP, but much less of the things you actually need.

    It is time to switch to Linux and forget about self-proclaimed control-greedy Microsoft. Let MS with it’s present attitude melt in history, forgotten, together with DirectX whichever-version-number.

  171. I’m a little afraid to try it on my gaming PC. My other one is so ancient it wouldn’t work anyway. I’m intrigued to try it but all my Google searches basically lead me to sites that are similar to this, instructions, download and loads of comments from users which are hit or miss. Is their any update on this? how is the progress? Is it being worked on to be more stable/installed easier?

    I’d love to play Mass Effect 2 and MW2 on Dx10 but refuse to get Vista. Gonna pass on Windows 7 for a while. I wish the author would try work with MS to get this as a public update for XP. XP is a good OS I’ve been happy with it for years now and they are not really working on improving it anymore…. this is all they need! Anyway I’m happy to see some effort going in to this, an update would be great.

  172. This Directx for xp pro 64 is junk. It has conflict problems with other applications. it is not a native written api application so it will affect other new and old application on the 32 and 64 rings; causing numerous applications to crash or just plain stall! Sure it may work for some games but its not worth the effort! just write Microsoft or the OEM constantly until there is a native 64 bit directx with legacy support.

  173. “To Crysis worked at Very High settings need to do the following steps:

    1. In folder BIN find two files, CryRenderD3D9.dll and CryRenderD3D10.dll
    2. Their names have changed between them.
    3. Then create a shortcut to the file Crysis.exe
    4. In its properties (right click -> Properties), where “Object” in the end, add “_DX10″
    5. Or, if paragraph 4 failed, then write “_-DX10″
    6. Also possible option without space, it all depends on the version

    P.S. Write without quotes and the “_” substitute for a space!”

    i dont get the paragraph where it says: “in its properties, where object in the end, add _DX10″

    what does that mean? can’t find “object”, or do i get it wrong? i’m from austria…

    plz help

  174. help me I cant play 3d games! help me please the message says video mode not supported and flyff says download directx sdk……

  175. No offense, but I don’t trust on this kind of “projects”, unless it has official support from Microsoft (I guess it doesn’t).

    If I had an old computer, maybe I could test this thing, but right now I’m using modern PCs, so I don’t have excuse to use a modern OS and get the most from them (using Windows Vista/Windows 7 and above, and using DirectX 10/11).

    Anyway, I’ll send my respectful wishes to that “project” and I hope they can get RTM phase. Perhaps when Windows 8 arrives, they can release a full RTM version of DirectX 10 for XP LOL

  176. to the guy above, take your vista and shove it. you don’t need a modern pc to run xp. you don’t have to have a modern pc, and not use that to run vista. it’s not even real. it’s not the same. you can also take your modern pc and shove it too. xp can run just fine, and how about releasing the dx10 for xp now. no they want to sell their crap. which you need your shoved up your but modern pc to run it, but you can run xp it don’t matter. take your modern pc and take your vista and shove them. you act like oh my vista is god and i run it on my computer, so it makes it a modern computer. because it’s ogt vista on it. my modern computer uses xp and it’s pretty fast.

  177. Yusuf Poerbo

    I forgot if the XP in use now the SP2 or SP3.
    Question please:
    1. Is this DirectX10 for SP2 or SP3 of the XP?
    2. I used to play (casually), three years ago on my Windows 98SE, the APACHE AH-64. I have the disk, but it refuses to play on Win XP! Any clue?
    3. How about the WOE (Wings Over Europe — also available are, WOI -Wings Over Israel; WOT- Wings Over Timor; Wings Over Spain, Wings Over Vietnam)? These WO* family flightsim (WOI, WOE, WOV) are available on-line at http://www.thirdwire.com

    My question, since the WO* comes bundled with the DirectX9C, will it play if I extract the DirectX10??

    Thanks guys.

  178. Just a question…someone post this and i was wondering what other thought of it

    “This is a useless 3rd party hack, known as ‘The Alky Project’, which modifies DX9 to report itself as DX10 when using DXDIAG…nothing more, nothing less. The creator gave up on this project during the early alpha stages because after 6 months worth of work he could not get a single DX10 application, game, or demo to run using this hack. Since the Alky Project no longer exists, this “patch” is useless…the creator of the Alky Project, Brian Thomason, has stated this himself.

    In other words, this does NOT enable DX10 support in XP (even if you have DX10 capable hardware). It does NOT allow you to run DX10-only games. It does NOT allow you to run games that support both DX9 & 10 in DX10 mode. It will NOT speed up your games, in fact, there have been many reports of people experiencing BSODs and total system failure after applying this patch (System Restore is your friend).

    The original uploader should have done his homework before distributing this as it is completely useless, no longer supported by the creator, and potentially hazardous to the health of your system.”
