DirectX 10 for XP???

By wompai ·
Ey, guys

I've recently been reading something about a DirectX 10 for Windows XP. Now, I know that DirectX 10 was only created for Windows Vista, but I've been reading that a producer called Alkyproject made DirectX available for Windows XP. I want to know three things:

1: Is it true?
2: If yes, how can I instal it?
3: If yes, would it be compatible with my ATI Radeon Sapphire 4600 HD series AGP 1024MB video card???

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, but that's direct X 9... I'm looking for a direct X 10 version that was supposed to be released for win XP by the developer AlkyProject.

As I recall, DX10's installer is the only thing stopping you

I heard it could be done by installing DX10 to a WINE on Nix. Then copy the contents it makes on your C drive to a real Windows install using a liveCD or some other operating system.

Some of the torrent sites (the paid ones) have actual installers for DX10.

As for DX11, I have no idea. MS shot themselves in the foot hardcore by not making DX10 and 11 backwards compatible, game manufactures know that a large chunk of people are still running XP and therefore, are still using DX9, none of the game devs are smart enough to use OpenGL or other technologies though...

Such is life.

I have no idea what WINE or Nix is, but it sounds like its worth a try... There's just one thing stopping me: if its that simple, how come nobody tried it before??

An Unix-like OS = Nix, a Linux distribution is generally intended. WINE is an environment for running Windows applications in Linux, etc.

Well in MMO's I have met a lot of people running DX10 on XP. So I think a lot of people have done it. Install it, grab the files, create your own installer.

Does the current Wine even have an option to emulate passed WinXP?
